紅屋頂之城—羅騰堡

img075 順著Hafengasse往西走,我們抵達羅騰堡舊城中心的市集廣場(Marktplatz)。 IMG_0053 廣場南側,矗立著羅騰堡地標之一、高200呎的白色鐘塔。一旁,則是結合哥德與文藝復興建築風格的市政廳。

隔著馬路相望的,是建自文藝復興時期、取水自25呎深地底的喬治噴泉。 IMG_0023 以一座中世紀小城而言,這個市集廣場的尺度剛好。 IMG_0026 廣場北面一度是市議員小酒館的白色建築上設有天文鐘,整點會有羅騰堡最有名歷史傳說(Der Meistertrunk)相關機械人偶的表演。 IMG_0047 相傳在1631年敵軍攻陷羅騰堡,敵軍將領跟羅騰堡市長立下挑戰,說如果市長能一口氣喝下七品脫的酒,就能保住全城市民生命。接下挑戰的市長不負所託,一飲而盡巨大酒杯中的酒,成功救了全城居民。整點報時之刻,鐘旁打開的窗戶就是打賭中的敵軍將領跟羅騰堡市長。 IMG_0159 市集廣場的東側,則是一排彩色山形房。 IMG_0158 山形房的一樓盡是熱鬧的餐廳與紀念品店。 IMG_0029 我們打算登上市政廳高塔,俯瞰羅騰堡這座紅屋頂之城。 IMG_0031
登塔入口處在市政廳這頭,一開始的迴旋梯又寬又好爬。 IMG_0456 IMG_0464 隨著高度升高,羅騰堡逐漸浮現在眼前。 IMG_0067 先來一張從羅騰堡東側城牆看向市政廳塔的影像。又高又尖的白塔鶴立雞群於一片紅屋頂之上。

拉近看,可以發現市政廳塔頂非常狹窄,大概只能容納十來個人而已,所以進出得排隊。最後上到塔頂的階梯非常狹小,身材太壯碩的還可能卡在出口處呢! IMG_0041 從塔頂俯瞰市集廣場。 IMG_0036 體會這是一座十足的童話小城。 IMG_0032 另一頭的大教堂,是建於1311年的St’ Jacob’s。

登高俯瞰羅騰堡瞭解方位後,我們迫不及待重回地面,等著探索這座古城的迷人角落去。

Hi I have enjoyed your blog for years. I really appreciate your taking time to share your beautiful photography. I see the scientific mind with artistic approach in every one of your blog post. And JY's watercolor sketch is so simple yet elegant. May I ask what drawing tools he is using? -- what brand/kind of watercolor, brush, fineliner, etc?

Dear Sir/Madame (May I have your name please?),
Thank you for your kind words. JY uses Faber-Castell fineliners, regular water brushes and Cotman water colours sketchers' pocket box.

Thanks for the info! This is Niccolo. I don't have any social media stuff to share. We met once at a friend's house in Seattle, many many years ago. I remembered you brought a homemade pudding to the party. We all know Yang, who was a postdoc at UW then. If my memory serves me right, JY works at YM, which is my alma mater. Anyway, you probably don't remember me. Doesn't matter, I love your blog and photography. They make me feel like appreciating the earth even more.
