Linsengericht is an attention grabber alright. I mean, you can understand wanting to name your town after a juicy piece of steak, or wine, or mouth watering dessert. But to commemorate lentils seems something so outside the box you want to immediately know why and go there just to find out.
Well, we’ll let it slide for the moment and go on to see what other eccentricities they have in store for us. ;-)
Linsengericht sure does love oddities as you’ll soon find out for yourself. If a town is known by the museums it proudly presents, then be prepared to be blown away.
The Village Museum is a great place to start. So, treat yourself to a wonderful collection of village artifacts and lifestyle exhibitions that refers to a time when folks really loved their stuff handmade and beautiful.
For a nice contrast, visit the Radio Museum which is open only every second and fourth Sunday of the month.
The Ahles Gelrrsch in Linsengericht is a totally different experience as you stare in wonder at the historic household utensils and knick knacks from medieval times. Even mundane stuff such as bottles and jars appear exotic. You simply can’t imagine stuffing your sauerkraut into one of these fancy containers.
Linsengericht has more than museums to entice you. It’s now time for the tour of the architectural wonders this city has in and around its vicinity.
The Jussowscher Temple, the 14th century Chapel of Our Lady, the St. Martin’s Church and the Lutheran Parish Church are all worth seeing not just for their historicity and styles but also the beautiful scenic that surrounds and the air of serenity that blankets the area.
Whatever you do, remember the magnificent Town House building. It will knock your socks off. Check out the wooden staircase and the completely unexpected fountain that’s about 10 meters deep.
Another thing that will amaze you is what they have done with their forest. So, enter the Court of Forests and get ready to merge yourself with its dark, leafy, enigmatic interiors whether you’re exploring nature reserves, wildlife, or cruising on your bike down a well-laid out route.
Lastly, you can’t miss the Horseshoe; that’s supposed to be one more highlight.
