Photographer's Note

Yesterday I showed you a group of tourists who obviously were marveling at something. Here you can see it ...
... the old half-timbered town-hall of the small town Schwalenberg in the very east of the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia. The middle part with the vending arch was build in 1579. The left part was added in 1603 in order to obtain a heatable (!) chamber for the council. The right part was added in 1907 in the style of the ancient parts of the building.
The beams - especially of the old parts - are provided abundantly with carvings (please see workshop-photos).
This town hall is situated near the main access to the town and all visitors have to pass it. Schwalenberg, founded in 1231, is situated in a rather calm corner of North Rhine-Westphalia, but it really is worth a visit because of its small but wonderful Old Town and the castle high above it.
