Barbarossastadt by Riot23 Barbarossastadt by Riot23
HDR + TM - Photomatix

This is Gelnhausen.
A town and the capital of the Main-Kinzig-Kreis, in Hesse, Germany. It is located approx. 40 kilometers east of Frankfurt am Main.

Gelnhausen was founded by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa in 1170, it is therefore nicknamed "Barbarossastadt". The place was chosen because it was at the intersection of the Via Regia imperial road between Frankfurt and Leipzig and several other major trade routes.

I swear... I love how it's definitely a photo but there's something so unnaturally lovely about it.

Feels like I could just reach in and take out one of the buildings.
