I’ve already mentioned in another post, what a beautiful place Wismar is. I love that Brick Gothic architecture so so so much! And so I can’t help it… I have to post some more photos for you to see.
But first… is it Christmas yet???
This cute old house in the pic below is named “Dankwart Straße Nr. 8” (No.8 Dankwart Street).
Built around 1430 (!), persumabely, on account of its minute* width of 4.8 meters, as a purely residential building. Around 1700 the original pillar gable was given a contemporary baroque silhouette. The substructure was altered many times over the centuries. After a long period vacant between 1980-1986 extensive reconstruction and restauration took place and since then it has been in residential use.
(*would some English-speaking fellow please let me know, if “minute width” for what is obviously meant to be “small width” is also correct? To me it sounds wrong, but that’s what the official info sign on the house says. Thanks.)
(sorry for cutting off the bottom but there were cars parking in front of it)
If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve probably seen a post, saying that we ate at restaurant “Alter Schwede” (Old Swede). Well… this is what we had. It was one of the most delicious meals of the whole trip.
I had what was called “Neptun’s Füllhorn” (Neptune’s Cornucopia) and it contained fillets of plaice (with dill sauce – on the left), salmon (with lobster sauce, middle) and pike-perch (with mustard sauce, right). OMG!!! I exchanged the boiled potatoes for a salad on the side. Who needs potatoes with this??? Most delicios meal ever!
S had “Kapitäns-Schüssel” (Captain’s Bowl) and it contained 3 sorts of grilled meat (I think it was beef, turkey and pork) on green beans. She also exchanged the potatoes for a salad. And she said it was crazy-delicious, too!
If you ever happen to be in Wismar, make sure you eat at Restaurant Alter Schwede.
It was almost a shame to sit outside but the weather was just too gorgeous on that day. I snapped a photo when I went to the ladies room…
Look! At! That! They let fall such a gorgeous old house apart, but they allow for a stupid “USA Nails” salon to be in it. How can you ruin such a building with a stupid Fuck-Me-Nails salon? (Have I ever mentioned how much I LOATHE these ugly fake nails?
Have I mentioned how much I like to take pics of graffities? Well… But isn’t he cute?
Sigh… the bricks… that balcony…
Look at the window details!
I didn’t make that sky up with filters…
There he is again, the Old Swede (red brick building).
I didn’t “filter” that sky either.
Meanwhile down at the harbour…
I may hate USA Nails but I love USA Vintage Cars 😉
On the way back home. A wonderful time was had by all. We love Wismar… ❤
