Outing in Fredericksburg, Texas
Fredericksburg started as a German
settlement after World War II

The familiar mood like that one of a “Hinterhof,”
a common outside area for an
apartment complex (I know from my year living in Berlin),
when entering through a main door at the street.
That door is locked after 10 or 11 pm (pre-covid!)

There was this big German kitchen store (Laden)
that had been a hospital previously.. They had left certain
common hospital furniture.  Germain style dishes

  1. This is such an interesting post with lots of pictures and motifs new to me! Do you feel like having become a Texan already? 🙂 So much to look at and wonder!

    1. Wa thinking the same Trent. If it woould have been Michigan or another state up North, but in Texas! But maybe because Texas is wellknown in Europe for good and indiependant living?

    1. The longhorns were my hubby’s idea. He had read about that park. Dear hippiemom, can you give me your URL next time -would like to visit your blog!

  2. Love the building in the first shot and that blue china. Texas is one place I haven’t traveled to. I need to go! Thanks for linking up and have a great weekend.

    1. What is known as history is probably not always how things went down. They came here right after World War II. Meaning, not everyone in Germany worshiped Hitler!

  3. Interesting photo series Jesh. The Euphorbia (?) for St Patrick’s Day looks wonderful. Also the interesting roof structure in the first photo caught my eye. Happy weekend.

    1. Ritta, was think the same about the roof. In reality the roof is much more darker and overpowering the plaza, so for the blog I lightened it up.

    1. Patricia, haha, you would be liked by my then countryside neighbors! Have to admit, now I live back in the suburbs, am still in the withdrawal stage of missing the forest surrounding our house.

    1. You will probably laugh at this, but this Main Street had more clothing -and touristy stores, than all of Sacramento, capital of the state of California had (that’s where we lived the last 6 years)/

  4. I recently watched a movie with Tom Hanks, the movie name is slipping my mind right now, but it is about a girl who was an immigrant from Germany. Afterward, I looked it up there was a whole wave of Germans who moved to Texas. I am curious as to how someone was able to sell Texas an almost dessert to Germans who obviously live in rich green forests. I mean yes the idea of owning one’s own property is appealing, but Texas isn’t exactly an oasis for farming.

  5. Oh dearest Jesh! I loooove beautiful ceramic plates! It reminds me of this shop in Amsterdam Centraal with all these beautiful blue ceramics! Of course I just looked at it from the outside, I won’t be able to afford anything from there HAHA But I got myself a small dutch lady ceramic bell from Zaanse Schans 🙂

    Love the Texan symbols! I always have a space in my heart for wild west designs 🙂

    1. Steve, did you red many cowboy and indians books in your childhood? I did, because I had two brothers, so when they were done reading, I read them too:) Next time you come to Amsterdam the place to buy antigues are on the weekly open air market – the real thing, and much cheaper than in a store.. Sometimes they’re called antique market, other times they’re just between modern stuff.

    1. Cathy, what does not come out at the photos, is the definite German slant in ambience, in terms of German signs, Beer signs, (to me, coming from California) more old-fashioned clothing. The longhorn cows were not in Fredericksburg itself, but at a park, specifically for these animals. Jesh
