St. John Nepomuk
The homelessness of the Catholic community Göllheims ended only in 1815 with the construction of Holy Cross Church. Since this was fast but dilapidated, was replaced in 1911 by the Church of St. John Nepomuk. The building, also known as "Nordpfälzer Cathedral", was built in the historicist style of late Gothic and has a very harmonious entity. Inside the church is a baptismal font created in 1500. He was originally placed in a chapel in Kerzenheim and home was convicted in 1826 in the then-new Holy Cross Church.
The Kerzenheimer Gate
The "Kerzenheimer gate" stands in the place of "pilgrimage gate", one of the three gates of Göllheimer attachment. From this structure is still a notch in the form of a hole in the ground floor of the gate circuits receive. The "Kerzenheimer gate" was built in 1776. The two-story building originally served as the gateway and customs house, next to it was also used for a long time as a residential building. Today the Kerzenheimer gate the "Little Gallery", are held regularly in the exhibitions.
Night watchman / constable / gooseherd
The three bronze figures in the late 80s based on a design created by Theo Roerig remember at the New Market Square, the Old Town Hall and the old gate to the Kerzenheimer Gate. You point the shepherd geese, the constable and night watchman figures who played earlier in the community life of the village an important role.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image même si la lumière était difficile à contrôler. Les détails sont d'une belle netteté.

das Licht macht´s! Das ist hier wirklich außergewöhnlich, wie es sozusagen die zweite Reihe trifft, vielleicht schöner als platte Beleuchtung auf der Fassade.
Schönen Vatertag (bei Deiner Tochter?)

the entrance to the village is very picturesque and inviting. You are showing it in a lovely and elegant composition which includes other aspects of the traditional arhitecture, details of the surounding area and a marvellous afternoon sky. The foreground and the view through the gate offer great depth. Lighting is superbly mastered offering an unstrained balance of light and shadows. I love the colours, the addition of the tree to the right, and the wonderful, peaceful atmosphere. Well done and thank you!
All the best,
