Summer Idyll on the Jahn-Island

 

The danube is divided in two or three parts, when flowing through Regensburg, and so there are some ilses (Inseln). This isle is called "Jahn-Insel" or "Oberer Wöhrd". The place is near the old stone bridge (just behind the photographer) Beyond we can see the old town. I have marked the place in google-maps.

Looking to the "Bruckmandl", who himself is looking to the Old Town



In real, there is a distance of about 50 m between man and stone-statue. And the statue is the famous "bruckmandl". He is looking to the South, this was the historical function of solch statues. In Wikipedia you find other theories.

The old stone bridge and the entrance to the old town


A Photo from 2009 from the stone bridge. I knew, that the next years they will renovate the bridge, and this was the reason, why I documentated the bridge whenever I had a camera and the sun was shining. On the google-maps-"location" I marked my exact position on the danube-isle, when I photographed this.

Two romans are guarding the fort



A great snapshot, I love this photo. The old roman wall is part of a parking garage. But the two romans are not real, they are a poster on a glass-front.

Ironman Triathlon at Regensburg-Stadtamhof


The marathon-finish of the ironman 2012 at ratisbon was in "Stadtamhof", the northern part of ratisbon, former an own town beyond the river danube. On the hills we can see the Dreifaltigkeitskirche. But this church is about 1 km from here and not so near like on this photo (an effect of the teleobjective lens). An between Stadtamhof and the hills there is a channel, because the big transporterships and cruiseships cannot pass the danube in regensburg. So we can see the blue facade and the windows of a cruise ship, that is waiting to pass the lock.

Dom Facades Part One






The Dom (Cathedral) is an example of pure German Gothic and counts as the main work of Gothic architecture in Bavaria. It was founded in 1275 and completed in 1634, with the exception of the towers, which were finished in 1869.  Says Wikipedia.

We ratisbon-people don't become aware of the cathedral. We are going round the Dom, but this building is too normal for us to notice it. Even the photographers are looking for other subjects and motifs. But why not photographing the Dom? I neede several years to bring myself to do this. To photograph the facade of the church, when I was walking with "Yorki". I saw the good position of the sun, and I had time. So what. I took the camera, ignoring the fact, that I look like a tourist.

Three cathedrals in one photo

 Summer night at the Neupfarrplatz. We see a memorial of an artist. This memorial represents the former medieval jewish synagogue.  We also see the "Neupfarrkirche", a evangelish church that was built later on this place, and in the background we can see the main Cathedral, the "Dom zu Regensburg".


Later, when sky got dark:

Summer night in the "Street of the Ambassadors"


The "Gesandtenstrasse"  in a summer night 2010. The name means street of the ambassadors. In Ratisbon there was for a long time a "Imperial Diet".  Many ambassadors of all countries lived in Ratisbon. Couriosly enough the street was called "long street" (Lange Gasse) in these centuries. Later the street was renamed to Gesandtenstraße.

At the Europe-Channel in Regensburg



I like to walk with my dog near the Danube-Channel and the Oberpfalz-Bridge. It is a very nice place, even the channel is artificial.
