Heidelberg (Baden-Württemberg): Schloss - Englischer Bau und Dicker Turm

Prince elector Friedrich V. built for his wife Elizabeth, a Stuart princess, daughter of the English king James I., the "English Wing" and the "Thick Tower", which contained the castle's theatre, 1612-15
Architect was perhaps his court architect Salomon de Caus, an artist from the London court or maybe the famous Inigo Jones himself designed the buildings. Surely he influenced the design. Inigo Jones came to Heidelberg for some time accompanying the Earl of Arundel on his Grand Tour in June 1613.

Heidelberg (Baden-Württemberg):Schloss - Elisabethentor, Großes Fass,

To the 20th anniversary of his wife Elizabeth Stuart 1615, prince elector Friedrich V. let build this gate by Salomon de Caus. In the background the English Wing.


http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/st...bethentor1.jpg

Within the cellars of the castle you can see the Heidelberg Tun, a huge wine barrel (220000 litres). 130 oak trees were used to build it (1751) for prince elector Carl Theodor. You can see therfore CT on the tun.

Geil renaissance architecture, my favourite style of profane buildings


Germany has (and had) the best "Bürgerhäuser" of Europe anyway. Well, together with Flanders and Bohemia (which were mostly German when they used to build patrician houses, anyway).

Then you will perhaps appreciate this very special Liberty Style-Neorenaissance-Neobaroque building by Josef Durm: the Heidelberg University Library, 1901-05

Prince elector Karl Theodor tried it in the second half of the 18th century.
Two lightnings stroke 1764 the partially restored castle and it burnt down again.

For him a sign of God not to try it a second time.

Since the Romance at the beginning of the 19th century, the ruin itself is a symbol for the tragic history of Germany, the failure to build a strong, united nation, because it had been destroyed by the powerful united France, a grandiose ruin as a symbol of the grandeur of the medieval "German" empire which had faded away.
Here a painting by Carl Philipp Fohr, ca. 1815

Sure I do, I know this building quite well That last facade is comparable to Dresden's splendid Zentraltheater in some way, which was one of the most stunning historicist facades ever done.


Right next to Heidelberg's library, there's the Peterskirche, a Gothic church that is the oldest of the city.

It used to have a beautiful redone Neo-Gothic look, but they totally ****ed it up in post-war times.
That's how it looked before WW2, around 1900:

I uploaded that postcard myself, because I was in anger about how they are destroying Germany's beauty in totally unnecessary ways (thinking about Entstuckung, removal of dormers/loggias/cupolas and their likes...). Damn it!

I believed to know Heidelberg's history quite well, but I didn't know that.

Barbarically stupid, indeed.

Heidelberg (Baden-Württemberg): Universitätsbibliothek - Die Manessische Liederhandschrift

The most famous book in the library is the "Manessische Liederhandschrift" with its brilliant pictures of medieval aristocratic life, made from 1305 until 1340 in Zürich (Switzerland, yes, Switzerland was part of the medieval Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation too), containing 140 medieval love songs by famous poets of the time (Minnesänger, aristocratic poets, knights)

Here some examples:

Here you can see the oppressed (in feminist interpretation) medieval European woman kneeling in front of her oppressor
