Relic from the Past - Plau am See, Germany

Newer Older

These sad remains of a once surely very beautiful half-timbered gable I saw last year in Plau am See, in South Mecklenburg-Western Pommerania. I hope they will rebuild the house. As I was there I saw no one at work.
Plau am See lies at the outlet of Müritz-Elde waterway from the lake Plauer. The town grew from a Slavic settlement in 1235 and was called Plaw like the area. This name remained until the 16th Century, but was then written as pronounced Plau.

If you have time I think it's amazing and looks much better in Large On Black

Diese traurigen Überreste eines sehr schönen Fachwerkgiebel sah ich im letzten Jahr in Plau, im Süden Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Ich hoffe, sie werden es wieder aufzubauen. Als ich dort war, sah ich niemand bei der Arbeit.
Plau am See liegt am Ausgang der Müritz-Elde-Wasserstraße von der Plauer See. Die Stadt wuchs aus einer slawischen Siedlung im Jahr 1235 und hieß Plaw wie die Gegend. Dieser Name blieb bis ins 16. Jahrhundert, wurde dann aber so ausgesprochen wie geschrieben.

    Wenn ich mir das Gebäude so im Ganzen ansehe, dann hast Du einen Klasse Ausschnitt gefunden. Alles Gute weiterhin.
