Nederland - Franeker, stadhuis

Nederland - Franeker, stadhuis
Franeker - one of the eleven cities of Friesland - was probably founded around the year 800. From the 11th to the 16th century, Franeker developed into the administrative centre of the region. In the 15th century, Duke Albrecht van Saksen settled in Franeker and the town received city rights. Franeker seemed to be developing into the capital of Friesland, but was surpassed by Leeuwarden.

Without a doubt, the graceful city hall is the most beautiful building in the city. The first stone was laid in 1591 and the construction took three years. It is one of the earliest town halls in the Frisian Renaissance style; beautifully detailed and decorated. Above the main entrance, the coat of arms of Friesland is depicted and at the top of the gable, the statue of Lady Justice, the goddess of justice, is displayed. The side wing of the building looks completely different and dates from 1760.

The building is a national monument and is listed in the top 100 of Dutch heritage sites.

vom friesischen Renaissancestil habe ich bisher noch nicht gehört.
Sehr schön ist die Kombination von Ziegeln und großem behauenen Sandsteinen.

Bisher auch noch nie gesehen habe ich die hohen geteilten Fenster mit ihren verschiedenen Funktionen. Klappläden nur unten - oben Buntglas: das kann abends von Außen toll aussehen wenn innen Licht an ist und drinnen bekommt der Raum tägsüber seinen besonderen farblichen Reiz.
