Where is "The Life of the Town" by Meisterman?

by grandmaR

When I went to Europe in 1964, we landed in Cologne and had breakfast in front of the Cathedral. We had a city tour that went into the Rathaus. Inside was a glass window by Professor Meisterman "The Life of the Town" which was a kind of timeline of history. We also saw the foundations of the Roman Pratorium which was underneath it.

I took photos, but I can only find two of the ATM and one is the Meisterman window.

But I can't find any information about this on the internet at all. It is like it doesn't exist. Can anyone tell me anything about this window?

Try the spelling as "Meistermann" when you Google.

use the google translation tool!

Re: Where is "The Life of the Town" by Meisterman?

Thank you for that - I did not know that I could just put the URL into Google translate. However this is what the relevant passage says, and I'm not sure that I understand it. Especially the bit about him finding "rust"

"From this close association is created, inter alia, a very pretty little book with the title "All around the Museum" for the master genial man situations quickly thrown out of the bombed-out streets of downtown Cologne supplies. Its designer is George Meistermann 1952 his "history window" for the new Spanish building, he puts his friend Schmidt-Rost a monument, as he adds it to the major figures in the city of Cologne, who lined up along its abstracted Rhine run in a window. At that time, there is a little resentment about the fact that Schmidt can find rust in addition to historical figures such as Agrippina.

"But these quarrels are forgotten and is so shiny, the 13 x 9-meter history window to its unusual composition now in the stairwell of the recently renovated in all its '50s glory-Rathausbaus. "

by RhineRoll

yeah, the translation tool never yields a really good translation, only usable for getting a general expression. The "rost" refers to Meistermanns friend "Schmidt-Rost" whose face he incorporated in the window. German "Rost" is English "Rust" -- the tool didn't detect it was a name here.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Cologne Cathedral

by divandrea

If you have only 30 minutes in time for changing to a connecting train in Cologne, you still got enough time to visit world famous Colgne Cathedral. Because the Cathedral is right beside Central Station. Visible from far away. So, don't miss it!

Tipping

by BarryG01

While service charges are included in your restaurant bill, it's customary to round up the bill anywhere from the nearest quid to 5%. '

This should be given to the waiter/waitress when paying. Don't leave any money on the table. In a taxi, there's no need to tip beyond rounding up to the nearest dollar unless extraordinary service is provided.

Thalys

by froggy06

Coming from the United Kingdom, I decided against flying and took the Eurostar to Brussels then the Thalys from Brussels Midi Station to Koln Bahnhof: clean carriages, trains running on time. Overall it is more civilised than travelling by plane and spending your time checking in, checking out,...

Mmmm - Icecream!

by Mariajoy about Eis Cafe Raffaello

This was a lovely corner on which to sit and watch the world go by accompanied by an accordian player! I had pistachio and chocolate icecream with extra cream for 2.70 Euro - Delicious! The staff did seem a little harassed as it was soo busy and one had trouble understanding my friend's german but any misunderstandings were quickly rectified.

Obviously you should visit the Dom

by Niekie

The Kölner Dom is the epitome of a gothic cathedral. You cannot leave Köln without seeing this mighty building. The church is so large it is hard to take a proper picture of it. But still everybody tries. The terrass from the café across the square receives many tourists trying to get the greatest distance possible between their lens and the enormous cathedral. You can see that my 18 mm wide-angle lens doesn't do the cathedral justice either.

When I was there in 2005 extensive restaurations were taking place on the outer structure. I don't know when they were scheduled to end. With a building this large and elaborate I suppose it is only normal for it to be under construction a great deal of time. The cathedral originates from the thirteenth century, but it took the workers 632 years to complete it. Imagine what that must have been like... to work on a church you know won't be finished in your lifetime... And yet, nothing was rushed but, instead, attention was paid to every detail. Generations of artisans and builders stepped into their father's footsteps and contributed to this gigantic masterpiece of the Gothic age.
