Summer escape to Rothenburg ob der Tauber

This summer I’m so involved with the creation of my new work that I decided to postpone vacations. However last week I took some days off and visited Rothenburg ob der Tauber, in Mittelfranken, Germany.

I was surprised and delighted to see this famous city from the Middle Ages. Is one of the touristic Hotspots of Germany. It receives about 2 million visitors per year. The history of Rothenburg is really interesting; start about 900 BC. Here are some pictures of this visit:

Great view of Rödergasse Street, with Markusturm Röderbogen on the background.

 

This is one of the few cities in Germany that still have the city walls intact.

 

Part of the city walls and the ruins of an old tower.

 

Perfect for a great entrance.

 

St Jakobskirche

 

 

Rothenburg Council and the city square.

This is one of my favorites places, it was the Rothenburg Castle. There was an earthquake in the middle ages and just this chapel survived. You can see the original castle on the drawing, and the red part is what now remains.

 

So lovely to walk at night in this town

Kriminalmuseum: this is so cool! Just read the description. We need some of this flutes in South America (and of course in North America!)

 

 

Taking a break after walking outside the city walls.

Peruvian dinosaurs

Now I’m exhibiting a sculpture series based on fossil discoveries in the Andean mountains for the educational public project “Peruvian Dinosaurs”. These dinosaurs were commissioned by Antamina Mining company. There is a lot to say about this itinerary exhibition. I’ll be sharing more information in my blog soon. For now, here some pictures taken in Miraflores Central Park:
