Uncaged Lovely Small Church

Diese nette kleine Kirche, die alte Hedelfinger Kirche, war nahezu verdeckt von einem anderen Gebäude und hohen Bäumen. Nun, da das Gebäude abgerissen wurde, kann man diesen Bau wieder bewundern. Wenn ich nicht wüsste, dass dieses Gebäude in Stuttgart steht, könnte man an eine alte Dorfkirche denken. So abwegig ist der Gedanke gar nicht, denn die ältesten Teile der Kirche sind über 700 Jahre alt, und da war Hedelfingen noch ein Dorf.
This lovely small church, the Old Church of Hedelfingen, was nearly obscured by a building and trees. Now the building is demolishd and you can marvel at the fane. We are in Stuttgart and this church reminds me of a small village church. This idea is not so far off. The oldest parts of this church are more than 700 years old. At this time Hedelfingen was still a village.

700 years? Omigod, that's older than I am! :-)

Is it still in use?

Re your comment on Florida fooling this time; that's a real gator...I took the photo from a walkway over the swamp.

It's so cute! I am glad you can see it now.

Nice clean classic lines. Why do councils of today have to put bright coloured bins etc near beautiful old buildings - a colour which doesn't stand out would be far nicer.
