The octagonal tower is 76 meters high. The idea for this castle was conceived by King Louis II of Bavaria. 'I intend to have the old castle ruins by the Pöllat ravine restored, true to the style of the old German castles in which knights resided.' This passage was found in a letter Louis II wrote to his friend Richard Wagner. In the mountains surrounding the castle the King wanted to create an enclave just for himself, allowing him to withdraw and to escape the troubles of everyday life. On 5th September 1869 the construction began. Under the supervision of Eduard Riedel the portal structure was completed as the first section of the entire complex. In 1872 Georg Dollmann took over the supervision and completed the palais roof in 1881. During this time a score of artists and architects worked on a design for the interior. The various suggestions were turned into detailed plans given to artisans by Julius Hofmann, who was in charge of the project from 1884 on. The King demanded drawings in colour and gold for each detail. The restoring of the castle took up 17 years (1869-1886), the project was never finished, however. The small castle, formerly occupied by robber barons, was refurbished into a monumental neoromantic structure with obvious resemblance to castle Wartburg located in the vicinity of Eisenach. Especially when examining the palais the similarity becomes evident. This main part of the structure boasts 4 floors containing glamorous halls

She was designed for the transatlantic service from her home port of Southampton, UK, to New York, and was named after the earlier Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth. She served as the flagship of the line from 1969 until succeeded by RMS Queen Mary 2 in 2004. Designed in Cunard's then headquarters and regional offices in Liverpool and Southampton respectively, and built in Clydebank, Scotland, she was considered the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners until the construction of the Queen Mary 2 was announced.Before she was refitted with a diesel power plant in 1986/87, QE2 was also the last oil-fired passenger steamship to cross the Atlantic in scheduled liner service. During almost forty years of service, Queen Elizabeth 2 undertook regular world cruises and latterly operated predominantly as a cruise ship, sailing out of Southampton, England. QE2 had no running mate and never ran a year-round weekly transatlantic express service to New York. QE2 did, however, continue the Cunard tradition of regular scheduled transatlantic crossings every year of her service life. QE2 w

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

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

Protectors of historical monuments were at least able to achieve the preservation of the ruins to serve as a memorial for future generations. The construction of the Protestant Church of Our Blessed Lady was ordered in 1722 following the example of numerous Italian churches. The cupola was built of solid rock - a bold construction for the current time. The construction was completed in 1743. The walls of the church were so solid, that the Prussian cannon balls fired at them during the Seven Years' War simply bounced off. It is said, that Frederick the Great made the following comment upon being faced with the non-budging obstacle: 'So let the stubborn bugger be.' Approximately 130 million are needed for a reconstruction of the building, the main source being donations. This sum would be sufficient, to employ about 50 to 60 stone movers and masons required to restore the building from the remaining stones existing as good as possible. In this context the value of detailed drawings and plans made due to various refurbishments shortly before the destruction is immeasurable. About a third of the building can be restored from original materials. For the rest, stone from the sandstone quarries of the Elbe river in Saxon Switzerland is used - just as for the original in the 18th century. Donations for the Church of Our Blessed Lady are raised not only in Germany - for example, the tower cross was funde

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.
Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Martin Luther House Eisenach The Martin Luther House in Eisenach, Germany In 1498, 15 year old Martin Luther comes to Eisenach to go to school there. To earn some money he sings in the streets which wasn't unusal in this time. But a lady sees this and takes him to her house to live there. Ursula Cotta is member of an influental family and today's Martin Luther House belonged to this family. There are still parts of this building remaining.In 1636, there was a serious fire in Eisenach that lead to considerable structural changes. The three buildings which stood on the premises were connected by an additional storey and a mansard roof. Around 260 years later, an innkeeper opened an inn called the 'Lutherkeller' (Luther Cellar) and guided interested guests through Luther's former living quarters. Due to the severe damage during World War II, the Martin Luther House had to be rebuilt in 1945. The Luther Memorial and the Evangelical Rectory Archive have been housed in the Martin Luther House since May 1956. On the occasion of Martin Luther's 500th birthday in 1983, the Martin Luther House was extensively renovated. Since the 450th anniversary of his death in 1996, the new permanent exhibition can be seen in the Luther Memorial.Martin Luther was born on 10th November 1483 in Eisleben and studied law and philosophy beginning in 1501 until he became a monk in 1505. He lived in the Wittenberg monastery and worked as a preacher at the parish church. In 1517, Luther wrote his 95 Theses as a protest of the sale of indulgences. Even today, these are regarded as the catalyst for the Reformation. In 1521, Luther was ordered to account for his theses and other reformation writings before the Reichstag (imperial assembly) in Worms and refused to retract his writings. Thereafter, he was excommunicated by papal bull and ostracized and condemned as a criminal through the Edict of Worms. He was befriended by a sovereign wh
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
