Beautiful photos. Many of my ancestors actually come from Thuringia, more specifically in and around Mühlhausen. The surname was "Lungershausen", quite similar to "Lundershausen". They left for the United States in the mid Nineteenth century.

Vielen Dank für die schönen Bilder. Selbst war ich bisher noch nicht in Bad Langensalza, aber die in Weimar lebende Mutter meiner Freundin ist dort geboren. Auf jeden Fall ein interessantes Ziel für meinen nächsten Thüringenbesuch!

Bad Langensalza really is an underestimated place, I just love it! Been there before 1990 once in a time and visited it again some years ago. Magnificent turnout, as in many parts of Thuringia.


Thanks for sharing this stuff here, Karasek! Our Grünes Herz is just too adorable to be true

Wow, these Thuringia towns look amazing. In many pictures it looks just like a perfect idylle where everything is well kept and people care about their surroundings.

Mühlhausen is our next stop. During the Middle Ages Mühlhausen was the second biggest town of Thuringia and a free imperial city. Mühlhausen became a religious center during the Reformation and the Peasants War, as Thomas Müntzer worked as a pastor there. In 1524 the citizenry voted out the old council and formed a new "Eternal League of God". Müntzer took over the town council and set up a communistic theocracy. A year later he led 8.000 peasants at the battle of Frankenhausen. They were defeated and Müntzer was beheaded outside of Mühlhausens town wall.


Town wall with the only remaining gate, the inner Frauentor:




The outer Frauentor. Both gates are the remains of a medieval avenue, which was used to welcome dignitaries like the emperor:

The house to the left was built as the town house of a monastery and later used as a stagecoach stop of the Thurn and Taxis:

Thanks for the photos so far!


Imageshak sucks, anyway. You could try ************ Or flickr. Or photobucket. Or another photo uploading service, as there are some Dutzend of 'em around.

The best uploading service clearly is Wiki Commons. No downtimes, your photos won't get deleted and will still be available in some decades. And if someone's searching photos of a specific place, he'll found 'em on Wiki Commons first. Give it a try! There are also mass-uploading tools, such as Commonist.

This house, like most churches in Mühlhausen, was built by the Teutonic Knights. Later Thomas Müntzer lived and Prussian architect Friedrich August Stüler was born here:
