Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Hohenschwangau Castle Hohenschwangau CastleHohenschwangau Castle is situated near the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which was built by King Ludwig II. Ludwig's father Maximilian II by chance discovered a ruin on that spot, which had been known as 'Schwanstein'. In 1833 Maximilian II commissioned his art teacher, the painter Domenico Quaglio, to reconstruct the castle ruin into a romantic castle. Originally the building was to be financed with 12,000 guilders, however the costs rose to more than 100,000 guilders. Quaglio complained frequently to Maximilian II that he was no longer able to sleep peacefully due to the rising costs. The painter was inexperienced in building construction, overexerted himself to the point of exhaustion and died shortly before the completion of the building in 1837. The royal family then used Hohenschwangau as a summer residence.Quaglio himself called his building a 'specimen of taste in the German style'. He didn't only carry out the reconstruction, he also decorated the castle with Gothic elements in order to emphasize a romantic awareness of life. The painter Moritz von Schwind equipped the interior rooms with numerous wall paintings whose topics were related to each other. The rooms were named after the topics of the wall paintings and were meant to represent a journey into the past. The outer façade was given a bright yellow coat of paint and numerous decorative additions like balconies and window ornamentations.In 1842 Maximilian II married Princess Marie of Prussia. When King Ludwig I abdicated in 1848, Maximilan II was crowned king. His son, Ludwig II, was three years old at the time. At the age of 19 he himself became King of Bavaria after his father's death. His distinctive interest in legends and myths was probably already created in his childhood through the very romantic design of Hohenschwangau Castle. This interest played an important role in the building of all of Ludw

Schreiber-Bogen Cardboard Model RonneburgRonneburgThe Ronneburg is situated on a hill on the edge of the Wetterau. The castle was considered a hedge surrounding trade routes and villages. The various owners left their marks. By the Thirty Years War the castle suffered considerable damage. By the Mid-17th century the Ronneburg was fully restored. It was even further expanded.As a place of faith it was open to all. Whether Moravians, Waldensian, Huguenot, separatist or Jew, for all the Ronneburg was a stronghold of faith. In the 19th century the Grand Duchy of Hesse annexed the Ronneburg alongside the entire Buedinger country.1904, the castle had to be closed for visitors. But in 1905, the Ronneburg was already so far restored, that it could be visited again. Today, the Ronneburg is a museum. The Hessian Group of the German Castles Association manages and maintains the castle. The association has set itself the task of preserving the Ronneburg as a landscape and history defining element. Length: 55 cmWidth: 42 cmHeight: 23 cm Difficulty Level: 2 (moderately difficult)Sheets: 9.5Scale: 1:250

It was destroyed by the Babylonians when they conquered Jerusalem and transported part of the population back to Babylonia. After they had returned to their homeland, they were allowed to rebuild the temple by the Persians, who were ruling at that time. This 'second temple' was completed in 515 BC. It stood in exactly the same place as Solomon's temple. Centuries later, King Herod (37-4 BC) reconstructed the temple, embellishing and enlarging the whole temple complex. Huge amounts of earth were heaped up. The enclosing walls bounded a space of 500 x 300 metres which had been constructed as splendid hypostyle halls. In these hypostyle halls religious instruction was given and trading was done. It is here that we must imagine the twelve-year-old Jesus listening attentively (Luke 2. 46), but also the tables of the moneychangers and merchants offering sacrificial animals (Mark 11. 15-17). The Roman soldiers were able to guard the temple from Fort Antonia, which was situated nearby and was somewhat higher in altitude (Acts 21. 27-40).The large square outside the temple with its forecourts was also open to non-Jews. However, only Jews were allowed to go through the Beautiful Gate into the forecourts direct

More than half of the approx. 30 legions was stationed between the estuaries of the Rhine and the Danube along the northern frontier of the Empire between Rheinbrohl (near Bonn) and Kelheim on the Danube was considered to be exceptionally endangered. For that reason fortifications were constructed from 85 AD to protect this area - the so-called Limes. The older parts of the Limes consisted of a palisade with a ditch and ramparts. In other places a wall which was almost 3 m high and 1 m wide protected the border.Along the 548 km-long Upper-Germanic-Raetian Limes there were many watchtowers. The older wooden towers were replaced by stone watchtowers in the middle of the 2nd century AD. The remains of their foundation can frequently still be seen and can be visited. These excavations and reliefs on the Trajan Column in Rome nowadays give one a reasonably original reconstruction of the stone forts. One example of a reconstructed Limes watchtower can be seen in the Saalburg near Frankfurt. The tower platform was reached by ladders inside the tower, and these could be quickly raised in the case of an attack.In course of time settlements sprung up near the watchtowers. Many places names still remind one of their Roman origins. A similar fortified frontier like the Limes was built in Britain - Hadrian''''s Wall - where Emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD) cordoned off the north of the country.

Its inventor, Graf Ferdinand von Zeppelin, had already occupied himself with the idea of an airship in 1873, but was only able to realize it after completing his military career. A committee of experts, appointed by Emperor Wilhelm II, turned down Zeppelin's plans for the construction of a stiff airship for security reasons. And so Graf Zeppelin was forced to find other financing possibilities. In 1898 he founded a 'Joint-stock Company for the Promotion of Aeronautics' with about 800,000 marks as starting capital. The Graf contributed about half of that from his own private assets. And so finally the LZ 1 was able to be built. However, the financing of further building projects remained problematic. After the Company for the Promotion of Aeronautics had been dissolved, and several public requests for donations hadn't achieved the hoped-for success, Zeppelin once more invested his own private assets. The Württemberg King Wilhelm II supported his plans by putting the proceeds from a lottery to a value of 130,000 marks at his disposal. The Reichs Government also contributed 50,000 marks, so that a second airship, LZ 2, could be built. By now, the military administration was also interested in Zeppelin's airships. They acquired the LZ 3 for three million marks as a military airship. It was in action until 1913. When on August 4, 1908 the LZ 4 was to prove its long distance flying suitability in a 24-hour test flight, a catas

The 'Hindenburg' was meant to relieve the airship 'Graf Zeppelin' which was no longer able to cope with the passenger and freight traffic alone. After four years of construction the LZ 129 was completed and in March 1936 made its first test voyage over Lake Constance. The 'Hindenburg was the largest airship that had ever been built and proved to be a considerable development in airship construction. With a length of 245 metres it was only 8.4 metres longer than 'Graf Zeppelin', but with a fuselage diameter of 41.1 metres and about 200,000 cubic metres it contained almost twice the amount of gas as that of the older ship Instead of the highly inflammable hydrogen gas, the LZ 129 was to be filled with the non-inflammable but very expensive helium which was only avaiable from the USA in large amounts. However, for political reasons the USA refused to supply the gas. Hitler had become too powerful and already at that time a war in Europe was to be feared The 'Hindenburg' was used mainly as a passenger ship for crossing the Atlantic to North America. The trip in the smoothly -gliding giant from Germany to the USA lasted about 65 hours, the return journey about 52 hours. The airship had a capacity of 50 passengers, who experienced journey in perfect luxury. The cabins were comfortable, functional and quiet.

Their production, which aimed at making a surplus, comprised farming, cattle breeding and the growing of vegetables and fruit. The main building was the centre of every activity. According to the size of the estate, there were also stables, lofts, sheds and other buildings for processing the agricultural products. There was also always a bath for the inhabitants, which was either in a bath house or integrated in the main building. The farm area was surrounded by a wall, a fence or a hedge.The Alburg Villa is the best explored of the numerous farmsteads in the hinterland of the fort Sorviodurum (Straubing). The main building was excavated to a large extent, numerous cellars in the surroundings indicate the existence of further buildings. Although the Villa Rustica was most certainly specialized in farming, due to the excellent soil, several kilns verify the production of bricks and tiles. The approx. 1.5 hectare-large farm area and the imposing main building say something for a considerably sized farm. It was built at the end of the 1st Century AD and used until the 3rd Century.The model represents the main building of a Roman estate. The terrace at the north frontage is flanked by two side wings which, for their part, are connected by an open columned hall. Through the columned hall one reaches an open inner courtyard with a pool and cistern. Several rooms are grouped around the courtyard. The main entrance to the villa is

In 1987 the ensemble was declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The tower itself was designed as the bell tower for the cathedral. With its round shape, rows of columns on all storeys and its originally planned height of 100 metres, it was meant to distinguish itself clearly from other towers in Italy and therefore demonstrate the wealth and the power of the medieval city-state of Pisa. According to the legend, Galileo Galilei conducted studies on the tower concerning the law of falling bodies.When the construction of the building began in 1173 there were considerable complications. After the third storey had been completed, the foundations subsided. The building began to lean. The construction work had to be stopped. It was only 100 years later that work on the tower continued and the remaining storeys were put onto the tower slanting so as to compensate for the tilt. However, the foundations subsided once again. Because of further interruptions, the building was only completed 200 years after the start of construction. It was too risky to construct the tower to the heig

Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Pantheon Rom The Pantheon,,Marcus Agrippa, Lucii filius, consul tertium fecit.' (Built by Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, during his third consulship.) This is the inscription on the Pantheon. However, it was built under Trajan and completed under Hadrian. Why that? There was originally a Pantheon built in the same place under Agrippa. It was destroyed by fire, was rebuilt and burned down once more. Trajan then rebuilt it once again. But instead of claiming the building for himself, he had the original inscription mounted.The Romans built the Pantheon as a temple 'for all gods'. The name of the building derives from the Greek words 'pan' ('all') and 'theos' ('god'). The Pantheon in Rome is one of the oldest domed buildings in the world.The Pantheon is entered through a portico. It is divided into three aisles by its columns and thus reminds one of typical Roman temple buildings. The interior of the portico has Corinthian columns and marble panels. The main part of the building, the rotunda, is unique in Roman temple architecture. This rotunda has a diameter and a height of 43 metres each and is dominated by a dome which begins approximately half way up the building. In order to reduce the weight of the dome, a special concrete mixture was used for its construction by adding lighter filling material such as volcanic tuff and pumice stone the further up one built.The interior of the dome has a coffered ceiling, whose recesses also save weight. Up to the present day the Pantheon has the largest concrete dome without reinforcement. The only source of light is a round opening (oculus) in the centre of the domed roof. The room is completely lit by the angle of the light rays. The symbolism of the oculus has been given different meanings: on the one hand it stands for the sun, on the other hand for the connection to the stars.The 'temple for all gods' shared the fate of many magnificent buildings in Ancient Rom
