Whittenburg Gate

As I was going through some pictures from our Germany/Denmark trip, I came across this gateway that I thought you might be amused to see. This picture was taken near the Whittenburg Castle where Luther nailed his theses. Do you think this tree was in this walkway back then?

Have a special Thursday!

The tree does look like it is growing in the wrong spot there. Neat gate.. Have a happy day!

I doubt that it's been there back in those times. But the gate sure looks great with it! :)
Have a fine day

I am surprised that someone did not whack it when it was much smaller. But I guess that gate is not used anymore.

Quite a world-changing place.

That's a nice photograph of the gate!

Oh I don't if the tree was there then...but you never know.

That ancient stone arch is beautiful. The tree looks old, but probably not as old as the gate. I've tagged you in my most recent blog post. :)

Great picture! I wonder what will go first, the tree or the archway?

Lin Floyd said...

amusing photo, maybe the perspective is shortened?

Most impressive, and as for that tree, hard to say, it doesn't appear to be as large as it might be from back then, but every tree is different. Old pictures would clearly show!

I recently read about Luther and his theses. In fact, I have been reading about some interesting church history.

I would say that tree was not in the walkway back then.

Good choice but wow that tree.

Mike said...

It's a decision gate. Do I go left or right?

William Kendall said...

Quite an arch!

And a happy Thursday to you too. :)

Lovely archway.

I think we need to ask Martin Luther about this...but he might tell us we're full of papal bull!

What an odd place to plant a tree. Guess you wouldn't miss seeing it coming through that archway.

Rebecca said...

I am guessing not or maybe he would have nailed his thesis to the tree. haha.

Funny! Love the photo!

Shug said...

A neat entrance....unusual and something one doesn't see a lot. Thanks for sharing...

The arch makes a great frame for the tree doesn't it. xx

Nature does have a sense of humour ;-)

This is a beautiful gate. Interesting that the tree was allowed to grow so close to it.

Linda said...

I love this, Linda!!!

Carola Bartz said...

Probably not - the tree looks too young! Great shot!

Pat said...

Love the arched entrance.

Marie said...

Awesome arched entryway! I bet the tree was just a seedling underfoot! :-)
