Pilgrimage: Augustiner Stadt Museum for Art
What I learned at the Museum of Art in Freiburg (old art, new art is next on the list):
1.) Vampires cannot enter here because there exist too many crosses. Most of which are made completely of gold.
2.) Flemish master artists typically enjoy painting four things: Bible stories, shipwrecks, fruit, and dead birds.
3.) I would love to have a pocket-sundial made of gold, just to carry around, pop out, angle in the sun, and figure out perhaps the celestial time and date at any given moment.
4.) The entire museum is a retro-fitted church and a very cool place for the architecture alone. Climb to the top and you can see the rafters above.
5.) Worth the trip for the organ alone. I’ll post a pic on Facebook later.
