Looking down the street I live in (but we’re going the opposite way in the next photos).

City Views #847: Out of the City 1


Here’s a new rule for the City Views: I know I always said I wanted to keep the series in black and white, but it just doesn’t make sense for a lot of photos that are less city and more country. So whenever I leave the actual inner city, I’ll switch to colour from now on! This first shot is actually the first view I get when I go out of the front door, but we’ll get to more greenery soon.

One last shot of Mülheim’s Petrikirche from the foot of the Kirchenhügel completes this mini-series.

City Views #845: Altstadt XIV


This is the second church in Mülheim’s historic inner city – the Catholic St. Mariae Geburt – that looks radically different because it was built in 1929, much later than the nearby Petrikirche.

City Views #844: Altstadt XIII


The statue of Hieronymus Jobs, standing on top of a fountain that is now located at the East end of Mülheim’s Petrikirche. Jobs is a fictional character from a satirical poem of Carl Arnold Kortum, who was born in 1745 here in Mülheim. This statue has been in several locations around the historical inner city before it was finally moved to its present location right next to the church.

City Views #842: Altstadt XI


Mülheim’s Petrikirche, the protestant church in the inner city. There has always been a church in this location, but the present incarnation was built in 1872, bombed out in WWII and then rebuilt – although it took until 1957 to complete the tower. There are actually photos from 1956 and 1957 in our archives I have posted before that show the church without a tower and later the construction. The tower is, of course, not leaning – I just had a litle trouble with the wide angle of my camera here.

River Views #250: Early Summer #38


The view from Mülheim’s Schloßbrücke over to the old railway bridge. I’ve just read today that the railway bridge has been closed starting this week so the new pedestrian and bicycle path can be extended over it. I don’t know yet how long this will take, but I’m glad the renovations have finally started and I’ve been up there such a lot of times this year that I don’t mind waiting.

City Views #841: Altstadt X


Mülheim’s Kirchenhügel seen from the East. That building next to the Petrikirche is not a historical one, but newly built and just completed this year – there had been a house of roughly the same proportions there until the 1930s, but ever since then there had been some nice trees and a green strip. Unfortunately some people in the city government and the local church had made it their pet project to put a new house here and now the square is very cramped again and the view of the Mausefalle is totally obscured from the East. Needless to say the construction of this house has been highly controversial and I’m not really a fan of it myself.
