Finally I can tell you what I saw in Soest. To start with, there is an explanation of something funny, but very important at the same time, that is how to pronounce the name of this city. You shouldn’t confuse the pronunciation of “oe” with the pronunciation of “ö”, which is a closed “o”. (I know this makes more sense for people learning or knowing German, but anyway try to accept this and, in case you have questions, ask me). In other words, you don’t say S-ö-s-t, but Sooost. All this is also explained at the station, as this is a common mistake. There’s written, therefore, that for the second time you visit the city, you should use the right pronounciation. 😂
Then there is a picture of the town hall, which is something I usually photograph when I am in a new city.
While I was walking, I could also see some typical houses, which are also common in other German cities, that are the “Fachwerkhäuser”.
As the city is very historical, there are different churches, such as St.Patrokli, St.Petri and St.Maria zur Wiese. An important detail: the green colour of the materials used for these buildings represents an aboundance of minerals.
Near the last church (where there are ongoing restoration works) there is also a nice pond that never freezes, because it is fed by numerous springs. There has also been the reconstruction of a torture instrument used for miscreants in the Middle Age (the yellow one on the left)
And the last picture is about the wall, surrounding the old city. Two thirds of it still exist today.
See you soon,
