St. Michael Church was consecrated in 1383 for the first time, but present church is from the 15th century.
I met an old man in front of the St. John church and said “Good norning.” He replayed “Guten Morgen.” “What are you doing?” “Ich zeige diese Blumen rund um dieser Kirche.” “When was this church built?” “Sie sollten lesen, dass Führungsplatte. (When I was a student, I learnd German a little. But I have forgotten almost of the language.)
“Unt, möchten Sie in die Kirche?” “Yes, please.” I asked. He opened the door.
“Es ist dunkel, aufgepasst!” I took some photos and left the church. “Danke schÖn, and Auf Wiedersehen!” I climbed the path beside the church afterwards.
Castle Reichenberg was initially the property of the bishops of Chur, and around the twelfth century it became property of the Lords of Reichenberg, who gave his name to the castle.
After this, I will go to Switzerland across the border. The following photos are the flowers taken in South Tyrol, Italy.
