Now I fount the time to tell you what we did last sunday. So sit down, relax and read.
Zandy decided to show us her hometown a little and we also went to a museum. First we saw this big red key. It's the Íhringer key, which is the city arm of Íhringen.
Than we found this fountain. But there was no water in it. Zandy told us, that all the fountains were dry during autumn and winter. So daddy, can you find me?
Yes! I'm on the right side. Here we take the next picture, so you can see me and my friends, Amalthea and Hanni, better. And of course the statue.
After a few steps we reach the Weygang Museum.
The museum is an old house, which was inhabited by Mr. Weygang and his wife. They have no offspring, so the city is now the owner of this house. Mr Weygang was a man, who thought, that humans will know about their ancestry and history, so he collected a lot of different things. Oh an Mr. and Mrs. Weygand were tin moulder. So we see a lot on tin things. But first we saw this chest.
Can you guess from which guild it is?
If you see the prezel on it, you know. It's from a baker. From this chest the employees get their money. and on the next picture you can see me and my friends also in front of the chest but also some signs of differnt guilds.
And than we went upstairs and met his guy. Ok, not really a guy, it's only an amour.
Daddy, do you belive that only the byrnie weights round 30 kg? The women, which showed us this all tould us this. Unbelievable! But maybe I can be a knight once, too? We will see, or daddy?!
Than we went to the dining room. Look this thing. The lady told us, that it shows that this family belive the spirit is in union with the nature. (The spirit is the little boy? ... girl? ... angel? whatever it might be and the antlers shows the nature.) and of course a family crest in the middle.
After seeing a lot of tin things, like figures, cans, cups, plates and others (we can't take a picture, because all the things were behind glass and the pictures get out very bad ) we went into the bedroom.
Daddy, do you know why there is a roof on the bed? I'll tell you. The lady explai it to us. The people in the back time put there bred for example, to save it from rats or mice. And now it's interesting. Do you knew the slogan "save something for a rainy day" (Etwas auf die hohe Kante legen)? It came therefrom, because the people but money on the roof. Interesting! Isn't it? We use this slogan so often and didn't know why.
Ok, but enough of this. In the house is a little room about the Roman times. The Romans have two forts in Íhringen, so they have a room to tell the story of vicus aurelianus (the name for Íhringen roung 155 anno Domini.) The Romans were here, because of the building from the Limes.
Here you can see me in front of a model from a fort.
And this was our visit at the museum. I found it very interesting. But it was allready late afternoon and we have to leave the museum. So we went to the city centre. But before we found this statue in the garden of the museum.
While we went to the centre we must pass this gate.
It's called "Oberes Tor" ("upper gate"). An than we see the market place and this fountain. It shows a guy. I think it's a city guard.
And another fountain. Amalthea, Hanni and I decided to play a little in it. Because we are young TVs an they will play some times.
Oh wow daddy! And on our way we found this nice model train. It's so nice! I wanted to take it home, but Zandy said no. And the train was behind a window. But we could play with it. There was a button to push and than the train run on the rails. So cool.
Sadly I must leave the train, because it's getting cold and the girls want go along. What a pity! But ok, I must be a gentelman and so we go. But than I wonder! We found the agley tower of Pisa ... ehm no, this is'n right. But we found the agley house of Íhringen.
Can you belive, that somebody can build such a agley roof? Funny! In the near there is a medicinal herbage garden. We went to it to have a look around. Here you can see me and my freidns. (I hope you can! )
We also found this funny guy.
He write something on a shiled. There stand's something like: Stupid run, intelligent wait, wise go into the garden.
And on our way back home Zandy take this picture of me in front of the Íhringer castle, the garden and the Stiftskirche (the left tower)
So, that was our day. I hope you enjoy it a little, like I enjoyed it.
