Hameln - Altstadt

• Hameln ist eine Stadt an der Weser in Niedersachsen.
Die Stadt ist wegen der Sage über den Rattenfänger von Hameln berühmt. Die mittelalterliche Geschichte erzählt von einer Tragödie, die der Stadt im dreizehnten Jahrhundert widerfuhr: Hameln verlor alle Kinder der Stadt. Die von den Gebrüdern Grimm geschriebene Version machte es weltweit populär. Obwohl Hameln einen feinen mittelalterlichen Stadtkern mit einigen bemerkenswerten Gebäuden besitzt, wird die hauptsächliche touristische Anziehungskraft durch die Sage des Rattenfängers gebildet. An den Sommersonntagen wird das Märchen von Schauspielern im Stadtzentrum aufgeführt.

• Hamelin is a town on the river Weser in Lower Saxony, Germany.
The town is famous for the folk tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, a medieval story that tells of the rat-catcher and of the tragedy that befell the town in the thirteenth century: Hamelin lost all children of the town. The version written by the Brothers Grimm made it popular throughout the world. Although Hamelin has a fine medieval town with some remarkable buildings, the main tourist attraction is the tale of the Pied Piper. In summer Sundays, the tale is performed by actors in the town centre.

    The optical distortion or St.Bonifatius has tilted?
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      It's only an optical distortion.
      The church is so big and I had not enough distance to shoot the photo.
      The wide angle produced some fish eye effect!

    Добрый день! Manfred!
    Отличное фото! Только я не вижу, где педали у Вашего оригинального велосипеда?
    Может быть этот велосипед на "электротяге"?

      Добрый день, Натали! 
      Спасибо за интерес!  
      Это лигерад - лежачий велосипед, позволяющий велосипедисту ехать полулёжа или лёжа на спине. Педали впереди!  
      Транспортное средство приводится в движение только силой человека мышцы. Не имеется никакого "электротяге"!  :-)
      Лигерады, как правило, быстрее обычных велосипедов из-за лучшей обтекаемости.  
      Даже лигерады производятся в России.

        Спасибо за подробный ответ!
        Теперь я рассмотрела педали...
        И ещё раз восхитилась Вашим чудесным увлечением!

    The couch should have a rest! :-)))
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      Yes, the couch gives me so much relaxation, so it should also rest once :o)
      Leaning against a tree, I have even already slept on the couch! :-)))

    There is no limit to perfection!
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      Yes, unfortunately, the vehicle is suitable only for very good roads.
      A normal bicycle has one track. With one track you can make way to blow holes well.
      The tricycle has 3 tracks (one track more than a car!).
      With one of three wheels you meet a blow hole always! :o)

    Großehofstraße
    Unfortunately, I don't know, how this method of building is called. In the Central Asia thus houses build now, sometimes fill with not burned brick from clay with straw.
    Your old houses are very picturesque! They from a stone?

    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      The construction method is called timber framing (German: Fachwerk [Фахверк]).
      The skeleton of the house exists of timber (that are the visible dark beams). The space was filled earlier with loam and later with bricks (these are the bright surfaces)
      This construction method was used in Western Europe since the antiquity till the 19-th century.

      Dear Lara, you see a barrage in the Weser river.
      The barrages were already put on more than 1000 years ago to use the water power by mills!
      So that the ships could pass the barrages, there were tow sluices. Only in the 18-th century the first right sluice was built in the Weser river.
      On the right hand side you see a wall of a sluice :-)
