Made in Germany 10 - Medieval Houses


Medieval houses in Tübingen, where I lived before we moved to the States. This is in the centre of the town, right across from the big Gothic church. I like how these houses seem to lean on each other, sighing under their age. On the inside, floors are often a bit crooked and the houses "talk", have their own special sounds. However, the apartments inside are beautiful, with a lot of flair and charm.

Do you have something German to share? A special memory, story, book, food, photo? Leave your URL in the comments and we come and visit.

One of the things I find so amazing in Europe is the age of the buildings and structures but the modernity of the contents. A really cool contrast that speaks to making do with what you have, updating it, making it yours rather than throwing it away and starting over.

I'm back from Scotland and catching up!! :)
