I love to wander the streets be it in my home town or the places I visit. I love to see the way people express themselves on the street. Public art, or graffiti…..
The beautiful street art reminds me that, hopefully spring is just around the corner. While it could be almost another month before we see the trees blooming I am looking forward to the spring bulbs like crocus, tulips and daffodiffs.
Haiku, Flowers of spring
The Old Town Hall was built in the 15th century, in the middle of the river. Between the old town and the new town. Legend has it that the bishop of Bamberg would not grant the citizens any land for the construction, so the citizens built an artifical island by driving stakes into the Regnitz river, and creating a foundation for their town hall.
This town hall was later erected in 1749, there is a coat of arms on the west has the City Knight St. George looking towards the Cathedral, while on the east is teh coat of arms of the Prince Bishop Franz Konrad von Stadion.
