St. Peter und Paul

Reviewed By coolcatToronto - Toronto

When you hear the big bells start to toll, you know you have 10 minutes to get to Mass!
This is a Roman Catholic Church and although we're Canadian, we attended midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. We all knew the story, and the rituals if Mass were the same, only the language was different.
The church was crowded, but not full and we were lucky to score seats even though we couldn't sit together. It was beautifully, yet simply decorated with enormous fir trees at the altar decorated with straw stars and lit with soft white fairy lights. Red poinsettias were the plants of choice and the red added a glow of colour to the green. To the right of the altar was a life-size nativity scene with the usual figures, and all was lit softly.
The organ was the instrument that evening and there was a choir of 5 or 6 people. Their voices were magnificent, falling and flowing and reaching a soprano's great range. It was so incredibly poignant that tears sprang to my eyes, especially when they sang the Halleluia chorus of Handel's Messiah.
Incense hung thickly through the air and responses were sung by the priest and parishioners.
This church is quite old from the middle of the 12th century and was originally built in the Romanesque style with arched round windows, but through the centuries, it was renovated, and expanded in the Gothic style with arched pointed windows. Stone columns support the roof and old wooden statues gaze down at the people. It has what I call an onion tower steeple with a bulbous bottom, followed by a pointed spire covered in slate. It sits in a lovely town square with a stone Rathaus beside it which is now a restaurant.

Super Raum, klasse Rätsel, schön und originell gestaltet. Die weite Fahrt hat sich gelohnt :)
Der "Raum" besteht aus ein paar Containern in einem Gewerbegebiet - das erste Rätsel ist geschafft, wenn man den Raum gefunden hat ;)))
Wir freuen uns auf das nächste Escape 2 go-Quest, was wohl 2018 kommen soll!

Golf Club Grevenmuehle

Reviewed By sbiesen - Duisburg

Der Golfplatz Grevenmühle wird entweder geliebt oder gehasst. Wir gehören zu den Fans. Er ist in ein sehr hügeliges Gelände gebaut, nicht unbedingt für jeden gedacht. Einige Löcher sind nicht ganz fair, aber der Platzzustand entschädigt für alles. Sowohl die Fairways als auch die Grüns sind immer in einem phantastischen Zustand. Die Bahnen sind interessant und auch sehr anspruchsvoll. Golfer mit HDC -36 und schlechter sind auf diesem Kurs noch überfordert. Die Aussicht von einigen Abschlägen ist lohnenswert. Die Restauration ist empfehlenswert. Man sitzt -gerade bei schönem Wetter- mit Blick auf das 18. Loch auf der Terrasse und kann das gute Essen genießen.

Funky Town

Reviewed By swaer - Grahamstown

This very old part of town comes to light on market day where the typical German fare is exhibited on the cobble streets where musicians busk to add to the hustle and bustle, amongst the little pubs and restaurants. A lovely experience to be recommended if you happen to be nearby.

Evangelische Stadtkirche

Reviewed By testerfrank

Wie die meisten evangelischen Kirchen im katholisch geprägten Rheinland muss sich auch dieses älteste reformierte Gotteshaus des Landes hinter den bürgerlichen Fassaden verstecken. Obwohl schon 1668 erbaut, wurde der Turm erst fast 200 Jahre später- im Jahre 1856 errichtet. Vor gut 50 Jahren wurde das gesamte Bauwerk dann renoviert.

Stadttheater

Reviewed By Ulrich B - Ratingen, Germany

Dass das Ratinger Stadttheater jetzt auch eine Gastronomie besitzt, wäre mir neu. Vielleicht ist aber auch nur die Veranstaltungshalle gemeint. Diese ist klein und gemütlich.
