History.

While my sister and I were in Hannover we were treated to a visit to the city of Braunschweig where we toured some of it's historical sites

We were impressed. Inside the Brunswick cathedral was a crypt with coffins dating back to the early 1100's. Seems there was a lot of royalty in the area back them.


This is part of the regal courtyard, Dankwarderode Castle . See the lion? Seems he was very popular with one of the royals Heinrich in the 1100's. Of course many of these buildings were restored after WWll.

This looks like a fascinating place to visit. I really like the blue of the church windows.
