Wow, lovely wintry scenes there. I think a very large chunk of Northern and Western Europe has had quite a bit of snow. I just need some down here in the south of England.

Oh well, great photos, thanks for sharing.

What town is in the pictures? You didn't tell us. I looked up Marta Museum in wikipedia and it says Herford. Are these photos the town of Herford??

Thank you all for the very nice and friendly comments!
@Darryl: The city is called Bielefeld, the MARTa Museum is in Herford, just a 10 min. train ride away...

Nice to read that you like it! More exciting to see it from the ground level. It was built ~1240 A.D. . Here is what wikipedia says:

I wish that Dr. Oetker sign wasn't in that one photo! It is such a pretty picture (minus that sign). It needs to be photoshopped out.

In another version I photoshoped it out. But I wanted to have it here, since Dr. Oetker is a native Bielefeldian firm which also gave it the nickname Pudding-Metropole,....
