Düsseldorf is the capital city of the region NRW (Nordrhein-Westfahlen), in Germany.
It is also the residence from the local government, Der Landtag.
The modern building in what the politicians decide about what happens in our area, is named Landtag.


Today we went inside

History and Art

Close to the Medienhafen,

in a wonderful area at the Rhine.  Lots of things to see and photograph!

And my probably most favorite photo album, ‚da mix‘  🙂


A wonderful morning with a great photographer and friend as company.  Not bad for a Saturday!


Glücksburg Castle (German: Schloss Glücksburg, Danish: Lyksborg Slot) is a water castle (Wasserschloss) in the town of Glücksburg, Germany. It is one of the most important Renaissance castles in northern Europe.It is the seat of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and was also used by the Danish kings.

Situated on the Flensburg Fjord the castle is now a museum owned by a foundation, and is no longer inhabited by the ducal family. Its board of directors is chaired by Christoph, Prince of Schleswig-Holstein, the current titular duke and head of the House of Glücksburg and House of Oldenburg.

It is also the home of the annual international piano festival Raritäten der Klaviermusik (Rarities of Piano Music) founded in 1986

Amsterdam (2018, March

A day to Amsterdam, with Hilde and Markus

If anyone asks me, what for me is the best city in the world, I not need to think long.


For me, it is Amsterdam.  Not to live, but worth a visit, every day that you wish.

I don’t try to convice you.

Just watch the photos (nd click to enlarge them)

Boat trip through the canals


Follow your dreams
They bubble before your eyes
Grab them

Let the bubble reach your hands
Let it poof
Free the air that is hidden
Let the water splash at your nose

What is holding you back?

Choose your life
Not all bubbles need to be catched
And if one explodes
Before it is time

Then think
That, maybe
Maybe this bubble
Was not meant to be

Find a bubble
They are everywhere


Another city with a lot of history is Xanten

With the Xantener Dom

the inner square

And with Markus  🙂

And with the rest, what is often the best

« 1 von 2 »

and with the crystal bowl, because we all need some sphere now and then

We even conquered the mill, who was in full function. A  challenge 🙂


A throwback in time.

At an early morning in August

Kaarst, as it was in the past

And Kaarst as it is now (a year ago)
The annual city event Kaarst Totaal.  Klick at het picture to see



Moers, a little town in NRW/Germany. Friendly streets, friendly weather, friendly people. Friendly company.

In the center of Moers you find the Moerser Schloss, unfortuately the front side is built in from many buildings.  The park behind however, is beautiful,

with as highlight the Rosengarten

Foto shooting in Moers, with Markus. A nice challenge, because he likes to photograph similar as me.  We had a good laugh, and a huge cola (autch).  Enjoy the photos

And of course there is some sphere  (or not?)


And black and white photography

‚at work‘  🙂

A view on Heidelberg from the Philosophers Road/ Philosophenweg






Heidelberg info









Alte Brücke  


Upwards it is called the Philosophers way. A climb along big houses, hidden behind the walls. Hig above it is the philosophers garden. A small oasis, with a magnificant view. No wonder that many philosophers fell in love there.

Downwards it is called the snake road.  Not recommended for who has difficulties with walking. But, between our careful steps, we enjoyed the wonderful views at Heilderbeg and the Old Bridge /Alte Brücke

This is Perkeo . 
Perkeo was a dwarf, only 1 meter high, who was brought to Heidelberg to entertain the people in the castle.
