In the winter shortly after sunrise, the southern facade of the Elbphilharmony shines like a second sun — while our real sun continued to rise in the southeast. Dock 10 of the shipyard Blohm & Voss is still visible in the foreground, while the power station of the Hafencity on the the left behind the Elbphilharmony blows golden smoke into the sky.

A sublime sight.

Only a few more days to the grand opening of the Elbphilharmony and the city is getting more and more illuminated. Everywhere buildings are especially illuminated. I drove 6 days before the opening to the Hansahöft, because from there your have this view with the Michel between Elbphilharmony and Hanseatic Trade Center. What a fortune, that not only the top of the Michels was illuminated, but even the half-port cranes at the side of the Elbphilharmonie.

What a light presentation!

Vikoria Meienburg plays and reads the life story of Maria Sibylla Merian. Accompanied on the flute by Angelika Schmidt, according to the idea and with the stage installation of Waltraut Biester.

Maria Sibylla Merian already explored and painted in the 17th / 18th century plants and insects. Her special theme was the metamorphosis of the butterflies. Born and grew up in Frankfurt am Main, she later lived in Nuremberg and Amsterdam with her two daughters, where she was recognized and respected as an artist, researcher and businesswoman. At the age of 52, she set off for her expedition to the distant Surinam, to the Dutch colony, where she also shared the life of black and Indian slaves. In 2017, her death is celebrated for the 300th time.

Half a day, Astrid and I stayed with a friend at the Landscape Park Duisburg North (LaPaDu). While Astrid sketched and later came to us at the blue hour, we ran around the blast furnace 5 and I gave a photo course. The views from up there in about 70 meters high are simply exhilarating, even if we had a rather dull cloudless sky.

At the blue hour it was exciting. From the west, some light clouds came over the sky and made it interesting for our photographs. The blue accent lights on the crocodile fascinated me.

Museum of Industrial Culture Osnabrück

Museum of Industrial Culture Osnabrück

The Haseschacht building from 1873 has a very close connection to the industrial heritage of Osnabrück. At this place there was a former colliery, where they produce stone coal between 1875 and 1898. The very short duration of the service was due to water infiltration. After closing the coal mine this building was converted to a residential building for the coal workers, but declined after the 1960s without further use. It was not until 1985 that the building was first secured and then transformed into the present-day Museum of Industrial Culture in the early 1990s.

At the time of coal mining in Osnabrück, the Hasenschacht building was used to house the machinery for the operation of the mining industry. Today, a permanent exhibition on the industrial history as well as many exhibits from the machinery of the coal mine can be seen. Access to the former tunnel is also possible here.
