May 25: Bamberg – Inselstadt 2
Then I wended my way back across Inselstadt and on to Gärtnerstadt.
The bank of Inselstadt (actually the island of the Schloss Geyerswörth) seen from the Obere Mühlbrücke, the furthest upstream of the central bridges across the left arm of the Regnitz.
Downstream, an end view of the Altes Rathaus over yonder. I'm curious about that shed-roofed building just in front of it.
Check out that open porchlike space in the middleground, nestled between closed volumes above and below. I love spaces intermediate between inside and outside like that. Especially in such a maximum scenic place.
The Mühlwörth street proceeds from the Obere Mühlbrücke under this connecting bridge. Take a look at the right half of the yellow building — ruts where the wooden beams to their left used to continue? That sounds structurally implausible.
Splashes of windows and skylights and... what looks like a disembodied half-gable down by the water.
A lush view upstream from the Nonnenbrücke, crossing onto the main island. The blurring of the tree reflections in the water farthest away is a curious effect.
A small herd of cranes stalking the land.
Positively junglistic over here upstream.
Whoa, those black window pieces look like iPhone holders or something with those rounded edges.
Oh yeah here's that ivy that they use to illustrate "rampant" in the dictionary.
A jubilation of roses.
More quasi-sgraffito; but this must be a different building because this is still Inselstadt and the other one was in Gärtnerstadt.
This is the Wilhelmspost, on Wilhelmsplatz, right near the canal.
The unmistakable cylindrical walls of the circular Wilhelmsplatz.
I believe we are peeking back at the above sgraffitoish building through this arcade.
More spring sprays of flowers.
Inventive inlays at Marienplatz, a small square in Gärtnerstadt.
Hey look it's the Erlöserkirche.
Suddenly, a courtyardramptunnel.
