    Author of Germany's national anthem

    by Maria250 Updated Aug 26, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben

    Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben is the author of Germany's national anthem in 1903 Deutschland ueber Alles. He spent his last 14 years as the librarian of the prince of Corvey. He carried out a lot of work extending and cataloguing the library of Corvey. The citizen of Hoexter decided to honor this author with a monument in the Corvey alley.
    It's nice to take seat on any bench there and get a taste of history's rather poetic part back in 1903.

    Hoexter

    There' s a large main lake with a wonderful, even though artificial, white beach offering options on activities such as beach volleyball, boulen, inliner skaten etc., and a playground for children as well. And there are those rather non-public lakes such as the photo shows.

    Nicolai Church

    The Nicolai Church was re-built about 1770 in Hoexter's center in the middle of its Market Place. The baroque Nicolai Church is surrounded by numerous historical buildings, stores, cafes and restaurants. Right beside are as well the deanery and the Markt Strasse's Fountain.

    Glaubensbekenntnis:

    Ich glaube, dass Gott aus allem auch aus dem Boesesten Gutes entstehen lassen kann und will.

    Dafuer braucht er Menschen, die sich alle Dinge zum Besten dienen lassen.

    Ich glaube, dass Gott uns in jeder Notlage soviel Widerstandskraft geben will wie wir brauchen.

    Aber er gibt sie uns nicht im Voraus, damit wir uns nicht auf uns selbst sondern allein auf Ihn verlassen.

    In solchem Glauben muesste alle Angst vor der Zukunft ueberwunden sein.

    Ich glaube, dass Gott kein zeitloses Fatum ist, sondern dass er auf aufrichtige Gebete und verantwortliche Taten wartet und antwortet.

    -Dietrich Bonhoeffer
