Lanzarote Doors

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

In November 2019 I spent two weeks on the Canary Island of Lanzarote/Spain. There, I took a Spanish Language Course to prepare for the big trip to South America I was planning in 2020. Little did I know that I was not going at all but would be subjected to a Corona lockdown which would not allow me to go anywhere for some time, not even to some of the Federal States in Germany. Also I discovered that Spanish Grammar is far more difficult than I had imagined. But I spent a wonderful time admiring the spectacular volcanic scenery of Lanzarote, enjoying the mild winter temperatures and, of course, beautiful doors.

Doors of Goslar

After our short hiking holiday in the Harz Mountains (see i.a. Harzreise: Rund um Ilsenburg) we headed to Northwest Germany to visit our relatives. But after we had checked out of the hotel in Bad Harzburg we first drove to Goslar for a short sightseeing tour.

Goslar is a historic town in Lower Saxony, Germany. It is located on the northwestern slopes of the Harzmountain range. The Old Town of Goslar and the Mines of Rammelsberg are UNESCOWorld Heritage Sites for their millenium-long testimony to the history of ore mining and their political importance for the Holy Roman Empire and Hanseatic League.

Goslar is so rich in history and features incredibly beautiful buildings. About 1400 half- timbered are preserved. We definitely did not to spend enough time at this miraculous place and we will have to come back some time. But we saw some magnificient doors.

Always looking forward to your feedback.

Doors in Haidhausen

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

Haidhausen is a quarter of Munich. Haidhausen was first mentioned in the year 808 under the name of haidhusir described in the documents as a settlement of small houses and a church. From the Munich center you can reach it via the „gaachen Steig“ (very steep path), which in the course of time became the term „Gasteig“. The word also stands for the well-known cultural centre that marks the border to Haidhausen today. The salt trail led through Haidhausen to Munich. The production of clay bricks made from loamy soil was economically important at an early stage.

For a long time, Haidhausen in Munich was regarded as a „shattered glass district“ due to its poor conditions. When in the 1980s industrial areas were demolished and replaced by living space, the municipal Gallery Lothringer13 in Lothringerstr. 13, the Muffathalle and the Gasteig Cultural Centre were built, the old buildings were also gradually renovated. The attractiveness of the district gradually increased, so that today Haidhausen is counted among Munich’s coveted residential areas, which are characterised by a multitude of shops, cafés, restaurants and a broad cultural offer.
From Wikipedia

Yesterday, I walked down Preysingstraße, the nicest street in Haidhausen, passing Kriechbaumhof (a historic Munich hostel) and the Haidhauser Herbergshäuser, small houses which were built in the 18th century as accommodation for day labourers. There, I saw pretty doors in a very quaint area, still looking like the small village it was in former times.

All photos were taken with my smartphone.

Doors in the Schliersee region

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

A few days ago I went on a walk in the Schliersee region. Today, I present different types of doors I noticed during the hike. First, the entrance to a residential property at the lakeside in Schliersee, then a garage gate and finally rather basic stable and farmhouse doors.

Which one do you like best and why ?
