Schloss Clemenswerth in Sögel, Emsland, Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Northwestern Germany 

Clemens August von Bayern war von 1723 bis 1761 Kurfürst und Erzbischof von Köln. Zeitgenossen bezeichneten ihn auch gerne als Herr der 5 Kirchen, denn er war zusätzlich dazu Fürstbischof von Paderborn, Münster, Hildesheim und Osnabrück. Deshalb gibt es in Sögel im Landkreis Emsland das Jagdschloss Clemenswerth. Im nördlichsten Teil seines Wirkungsgebietes ließ der Kurfürst eine Anlage zur Jagd und Erholung errichten. 

Frikadellen mit Grillgemüse. Frikadellen are flat, pan-fried meatballs. They’re popular in Germany, where they have different regional names such as Buletten, Fleischküchle, Fleischpflanzerl. Many variations exist but, traditionally, they’re made of minced veal, pork or beef (or a blend of the 2), chopped onions, eggs, bread crumbs, salt & pepper and/or other spices. They’re formed into a ball, then flattened a little and fried in a pan in butter or vegetable oil. They can also be served cold, sliced thinly as a base for open face sandwiches on rye bread.

Bamberg in Oberfranken, Bayern (Bavaria) on the river Regnitz is a UNESCO world heritage site. During the post-Roman times of Germanic migration and settlement, this region was inhabited mostly by Slavs. The town was first mentioned in 902. In 1647, the University was founded. Germans in Poland were mostly descendants of settlers from this area, who settled in villages around Posen in the 1700’s. In 1973, the town celebrated its 1000th anniversary. It’s near Nürnberg and Würzburg and extends over 7 hills, each crowned by a church, they call it the “Franconian Rome”. It has been an important base for the Bavarian, German, and more recently American military. Warner Barracks, a U.S. military base, has been slated for complete closure in the fall of 2014. The last remaining battalion left in June. Upon base closure, the base property will be returned to the German government.

Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, Southwestern Germany. The first evidence of human life in Europe was found here. In 1907, a jaw-bone was discovered in a gravel pit in Heidelberg - it’s the earliest evidence found of human life in Europe. The ‘Heidelberg Man’ is the name now given to a member of this extinct human species, considered closely related to “Homo erectus”.

Manor House (1918) by German painter Franz Hoffmann-Fallersleben

Manor House (1918) by German painter Franz Hoffmann-Fallersleben

He who defends everything defends nothing.

Frederick II (1194-1250), Holy Roman Emperor and head of the House of Hohenstaufen. His political and cultural ambitions, based in Sicily and stretching through Italy to Germany, even to Jerusalem, were enormous, but his enemies, especially the popes, prevailed, and his dynasty collapsed soon after his death. Historians have searched for superlatives to describe him, as in the case of Professor Donald Detwiler, who wrote: ”A man of extraordinary culture, energy, and ability – called by a contemporary chronicler stupor mundi (wonder of the world), by Nietzsche the first European, and by many historians the first modern ruler – Frederick established in Sicily and southern Italy something very much like a modern, centrally governed kingdom with an efficient bureaucracy.”

Viewing himself as a direct successor to the Roman Emperors of Antiquity, he was Emperor of the Romans from his papal coronation in 1220 until his death; he was also a claimant to the title of King of the Romans from 1212 and unopposed holder of that monarchy from 1215. As such, he was King of Germany, Italy, and Burgundy. At the age of 3, he was crowned King of Sicily as co-ruler with his mother. His other title was King of Jerusalem by virtue of marriage and his connection with the Sixth Crusade. He was frequently at war with the Papacy, hemmed in between Frederick’s lands in northern Italy and his Kingdom of Sicily to the south, and thus was excommunicated 4 times and often vilified in pro-papal chronicles of the time and since. Pope Gregory IX went so far as to call him the Antichrist. Speaking 6 languages (Latin, Sicilian Italian, German, French, Greek, Arabic), Frederick was an avid patron of science and the arts. After his death, his line quickly died out and the House of Hohenstaufen came to an end.
