Rhein - Rhine River, Speyer: 2 reviews and 2 photos
A lovely view, a homage to this beautiful city.
Right in front on the DOM entrance is THE DOMNAPF, dating from 1490.
According to TRADITION ( I adore tradition )
wine has to be poured here on special occasions such as the assignment of a new Bishop.
Of course wine flowed richly in 1990 on occasion of the CITY'S 2000th BIRTHDAY.....and rightly so! This beautiful and pleasant city is still very ALIVE & KICKING !
Long ago some 50 REICHSTAGE were held here in Speyer.
This was a sort of PARLIAMENT and apart from the KAISER & the ELECTORS, there were: 300 princes, 140 dukes / counts, 120 (arch)bishops and the representatives of some 200 cities / towns..........read this and try to imagine what SPEYER must have looked like during these MEETINGS..............
Address: CITY CENTRE....
