Hagen

(From Wikipedia)
Hagen  is the 41st-largest city in Germany. The municipality is located in the state of North RhineWestphalia. It is located on the south eastern edge of the Ruhr area, 15 km south of Dortmund, where the rivers Lenne and Volme (met by the river Ennepe) meet the river Ruhr.

At most likely the last day of this year’s summer, with the love of my life.

Zeche Zollverein Essen / Kokerei

Not that long ago, Germany has as well a rich coal producing history.

One of the largest squares were the Zeche, under the smoke of Essen (or the other way around)
After that the production was stopped, in the 70s, the area became at the UNESCO Architecture Memorial places.

Our visit to it can be settled in one word.  Huge.

Immense buildings, a view in the recent history.  I hope you enjoy the photos

Appeltaat Fest

September.

Autumn

One of the nice traditions in our town is the traditional Appeltaat Fest, as start of the autumn season.

Appeltaat is slang/dialect for Apfelkuchen (hochdeutsch) and in dutch it is Appeltaart.   See why I love it here, they almost speak my language 🙂

Here are a few photos.  Sorry for the bad quality, light and shadow were huge enemies today  🙁

There is an applepie  here in house as well, also who wants a bite… be quick!
