Groß Raden Archaeological Museum

Groß Raden, Germany

The Groß Raden Archaeological Open Air Museum is in a depression that borders directly onto the lake of Groß Radener See. On a peninsula in front of that lies its circular castle rampart, visible from afar, which has a diameter of 50 metres. From 1973 to 1980 extensive excavations were carried out here, led by Ewald Schuldt, during the course of which the remnants of a Slavic settlement dating to the 9th and 10th centuries was unearthed. The fort has been reconstructed based on the excavations and established as an archaeological open-air museum. It has been enhanced by finds from the Slavic castle of Behren-Lübchin.

sehr interessant wie die Vorfahren damals gelebt haben, man kommt sich vor als würde man in einer anderen Zeit leben..vom Parklatz aus muss man jedoch ganz schön weit laufen...

Wir haben uns gemeinsam es angesehen und waren sehr positiv überrascht über die tolle Atmosphäre die aufkommt wenn Mann sich in ruhe dort alles anschaut. Historisch bedingt ist das Freilichtmuseum nur bedingt Rollstuhl zugänglich. Doch bekommt Mann einen guten Eindruck und kann in jedes Haus hinein sehen. Das Museum wo es wechselnde Ausstellungen gibt ist komplett Rollstuhl zugänglich, sehr modern und mit eins der besten Museen das ich besucht habe.

Sehr gut aufgearbeitet. Es gibt wirklich viel zu sehen. Und auf dem Weg wird der Wald "erklärt". Man kann Lagerfeuer machen und das Mitgebrachte essen.

Aus dieser Anlage wird nichts gemacht. Außerdem gibt es keinerlei Getränke zu kaufen. Da denkt man schon ans umkehren bevor man sich alles in Ruhe angesehen hat. Insgesamt incl. dem dazugehörenden Museum und mit Spielplatz muss man drei Stunden einplanen.

Erfurt Synagogue

The Erfurt Synagogue was built c. 1094. It is thought to be the oldest synagogue building still standing in Europe. Thanks to the extensive preservation of the original structure, it has a special place in the history of art and architecture and is among the most impressive and highly rated architectural monuments in Erfurt and Thuringia. The synagogue was constructed during the Middle Ages on the via regia, one of the major European trade routes, at the heart of the historical old quarter very close to the Merchants Bridge and the town hall. Many parts of the structure still remain today, including all four thick outer walls, the Roman­esque gemel window, the Gothic rose window and the entrance to the synagogue room.

After extensive restoration, the building was reopened in 2009. On display in the exhibition rooms is an collection of medieval treasures discovered during archaeological excavations. This includes 3,140 silver coins, 14 silver ingots, approx. 6,000 works of goldsmithery from the 13th and 14th centuries and an intricately worked wedding ring of the period, of which only two others are known to exist anywhere in the world. A mikveh (Jewish bath) has been excavated close by (13th/14th century). The Old Synagogue, the Small Synagogue and two Jewish cemeteries together form a network of historical buildings and sites which vividly portray the role of Jewish life in the history of Erfurt.
