夏夫豪森是瑞士北邊,靠近德國邊界的一個小山城,人口雖然只有三萬多人,不過卻是馳名的觀光小鎮。Schaf在德語中指「綿羊」,Haus即house,從命名可推想這地方自古以來肯定是豐沃的牧羊地,就連市旗的圖樣也是一頭窩在堡壘裡的大綿羊。

夏夫豪森的歷史並不長,只有一千多年,在歐洲算是年輕的城市。市區不大,隨意走走就能輕鬆逛完整個市區。一如典型的瑞士風格,夏夫豪森的房子牆上常可見瑰麗的壁畫,其中最富盛名的就是騎士之家(Haus zum Ritter),其外牆上的濕壁畫出於當地藝術家Tobias Stimmer之手。此外,建於十六世紀的穆諾城(Festung Munot)高高座於城東的一大片葡萄園之中,可惜我的時間不夠充裕,不然站在城牆上俯瞰整個城市一定是幅美妙的風景。

我在舊城區閒晃時發現一扇有趣的窗戶,望進去可見一個端坐的骷顱,若有所思地凝視著遠方,是在尋找什麼嗎?還是在等候什麼?



好像還不到結尾的感覺,是啊!我對這座城市的探索,還沒有結束...

  • 我覺得畫在戶外牆上的壁畫,
    雖然免不了是救贖、神話等宗教的題材,
    但比起宮殿天花板、牆上的畫,
    可是要有生氣多了!

    久久才見到你一篇文章,
    馬上卻又要遠行,
    冬天了,歐洲當然是冷得要命,
    旅途多小心。

  • Hey there,

    How are you doing? This is not the first time I surf your blog
    but response first time. It's not the way I am used to talking
    to "stranger", yet it isn't too bad to have a try, right?

    I hardly found a blog with so many articles about Germany,
    and that's why I was so curious about it in very beginning. I
    love traveling in Germany as well, and she's the country I've
    travelled for dozen times but have never get tired of. I've
    visited many cities (towns) in Germany and Switzerland, but I
    haven't been to Schaffhausen. I know this place, but for
    some reason, I just missed it!! I will definitely find a chance
    to visit it next time.

    Take good care and keep warm while traveling in Europe!

    Ciao.

  • Hi Owl,

    Nice to know you here!

    Originally, I had an only impression that Germany was guilty for the
    two world wars. Unexpectedly, during my one-year-short stay in
    Germany, I traveled more than one hundred cities and towns in europe
    and most of them were in Germany. Unlike Paris or historic italian
    cities, a german town hardly inspired me any passion at the first
    sight, but my affection to her, just like slowly matured grapes, has
    grown from nostagia and revisit. Now, I still travel in Germany quite
    often for business purpose.

    It seems that you are also a big Germany fan. If possible, I'd like to
    share your point of views to her. It must be very interesting:)

  • Hey,

    I am wondering if you know that this page seems to get
    problem, for I tried to post message in this page yesterday but
    failed. Lucky you! You don't need to spend too much time to
    read what I posted here because it didn't work :-)
