Earlier this month, I went to the Kaisergarten in Oberhausen, Germany. I almost forgot I took some pictures. The Kaisergarten is supposed to be a memorial to “Kaiser Wilhelm l.” and got its name in celebration of Wilhelm’s 100. anniversary in 1898. The park itself is much older though.There’s also a free-to-visit animal enclosure located in this city park. However, I don’t want to distribute photos of these animals, except for the beautiful free-running peacock, because I really dislike cage housing of animals. Don’t get me wrong, the animals of this park could be much worse off, compared to regular zoos, but the keeping of these animals isn’t as good and species-appropriate as promised on their website. However, enjoy the scenery and that awesome peacock.
This is the Rhine-Herne Canal; it flows past the Kaisergarten; there are some huge ships on it. Cool!Well… what a…yeah… cute crown. Is that really a symbol for a Kaiser? This pond is nice and the spot was totally cozy; I really like the spout.Another perspective. I could instantly fall asleep thzzZzzzZzzZzz. I really enjoy the various shades of green, not grey, in this picture.Nice symmetry. Nuff said.
There are also some nice flowers there.The weather was really good, it was also quite warm. So this tree’s shelter was quite convenient for a quick picnic break.This cool guy was quite bold and followed us a bit. The coloring of its plumage is fantastic and a sight for sore eyes.
I’m looking forward to your feedback.
