    Love this story – you made it so easy to take this incredible journey with you! [Did you feel the weight of carrying all of us while you were on the stairs??]

      Thanks so much. Yes, I did feel the weight. I really wanted to describe what it felt like there. I’m so appreciative to have had the experience and I really wanted to share it as I felt it. Between the building, the tower keeper and the view, the history just seeps into you. Thanks for joining me and commenting.

    Hey Carole – thanks again for your visit, it was very interesting for me, too, hearing about your traveling this world! Keep up the good work, I hope to keep in touch and read more fascinating stories of yours.
    Just a little correction about the Anabaptists of Münster: The three leaders that were tortured to death and whose bodies were put in that cages were named Jan Bockelson (nickname “Jan van Leiden” or English “John of Leiden”, because he came from the Netherlands and the city of Leiden), Bernd Krechting (as a substitute for the more important brother Herinrich Krechting who could flee) and Bernd Knipperdolling (a really old Westfalian surname).

      All fixed. Darn the German/Wesfalian names. I have such trouble with them. And there’s an amazing amount of bad information out there (I’d hate to be one adding to it). I should have known to go right to the source. Thanks for the correction!

        Carole, thank you for the corrections and I appriciate the effort. I also became confused with names (especially when some have similar ones) but I applaud your commitment as the shortage of documentation and translations can’t be on your side. Never mind the fact that we are referring to events in the 1500!

    I loved this and it is exactly the kind of thing I would choose to do. Thanks for bringing me along! I’m thinking I am a tower/lighthouse kind of woman.

      Thanks. It was an incredible experience (especially in that tower with such history) and Marjke is an amazing woman.

    After listening to a podcast of Dan Carlin about this historical fact, I stumbled on this reading I can honestly say that my curiosity is satisfied. It’s just good to know that finally there are “no foes, no fires” on this land.
