Kristiansand

The maritime atmosphere and the Skagerrak were taken as a model for the undulating roof of Kristiansand's Kilden Theater, which also serves as a concert hall. The building integrates perfectly into its surroundings and at the same time becomes a statement of modern architecture.

Strolling through the city you will discover many interesting buildings, even the McDonald's fast food restaurant is housed in an extraordinary, almost monumental palace. Four pillars with an antique look at the entrance separate you from the profane burger - if you like it.

The Harbor Ghost

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Wed, 08/10/2022 - 14:03

When it gets dark at the harbor in Kristiansand, you probably shouldn't go through this narrow passage. Who knows what the harbor ghost will do to the inattentive pedestrians there?

Mintstreetart has created a successful work of art that interacts with the environment in a fun way.

There is even more successful street art to discover at the harbor and the fast moose at least doesn't scare you :-)

Hundreds of statues and a town hall

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Mon, 06/20/2022 - 11:37

A tour of Leuven offers many surprises - small as well as big. Of course, the town hall on the Great Market is impressive and is one of the most beautiful late Gothic buildings in Europe. It is decorated with hundreds of figures depicting biblical scenes as well as scholars and important figures in Louvain's history. It was built from 1439 to 1468 and stands directly opposite the St. Peter's Church.

Nagasaki after the World War

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Thu, 02/24/2022 - 18:05

Originally an insignificant fishing village, Nagasaki experienced a sustained boom with the arrival of the Portuguese in the mid-16th century. This is considered to be the first contact between Europeans and Japanese ever. The missionary F. Xavier founded the basis for the Jesuit missionary work there and soon Christian churches and nursing homes were established. This went hand-in-hand with the growing prosperity of the small town, which did not go unnoticed by the mighty of Japan, and thus not without consequences for the peaceful community of Nagasaki.
