Urkundlich wird die St. Michael geweihte Kirche 1275 als „ecclesia Hundelwanch“ in decanatu Thudewanch“ (Dekanat Deutwang) erwähnt. Das Gotteshaus hat eine sehr interessante Geschichte. Mehr dazu hier

Schönes Farbenspiel! Gruß, Bernd

LOL, Bernd, nix CSI Miami sondern YMCA Stockach! ;))) Ist vielleicht ein bisschen heftig in den Farben aber ich mag's ja bunt und je weiter ich die Sättigungsregler gen Anschlag gedreht habe, desto größer wurde der Farbunterschied der einzelnen Bildbestandteile. Drum hab' ich es so gelassen.

Mit bunten Grüßen aus dem farbenfrohen Stockach,

Glad, that you like it, snakeshit! This place is not only beautiful, it also has a very interesting history. Parts of the church where built in the middle ages arround 1100 a. D. It once belonged to the earls of nellenburg. The castle of the earls is two kilometers from here. But there's only a hulk left. Some of the earls were buried in a crypt under the church. The crypt was closed a long time ago and noone knows exactly, where it is. St. Michael also has a very impressive interior, with very old artworks.

Best wishes from Stockach near the Lake of Constanze,

what a inetresting story!!! it's like a tale!!!

Strucki on October 14, 2009

This is no tale, snakeshit. In the wall of the curch is an epitaph, once closed the crypt as a tomb slab. It shows a deer antler, the sign of the earls of nellenburg and is bearing the inscription:

“Anno Domini MCCCLXXI oblit Eberhardus comes de Nellenburg VI Jdus Marcii Jndictio VIII”, this says, that Eberhard, the earl of nellenburg was buried here at march, the 6th in 1371. The inscription of a second tomb slab isn't readable any more.

But many legends are entwining around the knights of the Nellenburg. And the legends are still very vivid here. So here one of them, if you're interested in:

Hans Kuony von Stocken was a court yerk of the Austrian duke Leopold I. Hans Kuony warned his master wisely in the war between Switzerland and Austria in the 14th century. So he has got the privileg for a yester's court in his hometown. During the dispositions to the battle of Morgarten (1315), he told his master: "Ihr geratet wohl, wie ihr wollt in das Land Schwyz hinein kommen, jedoch geratet keiner, wie ihr wieder wollt heraus kommen." This means: "You guess well, how to come to Switzerland, but you don't know how to come back." The peers where laughing, thinking, this was a joke. But after the battle, where Leopold was beaten, he came back, with not much more, than his life and remembered the yerks advice. So every year in carnival, the yester's court is dispensing foolish justice. Politicians like Angela Merkel and many more had to appear before the court. Usually they are punished by paying some buckets full of wine for the tribunal.

Best wishes from foolish Stockach,

Ich find die mürbe Farbe der Rosenpflückerin im 'Bunten' wunderbar, das ist irgendwie eine tolle Komposition :)

Viele Grüße, Usch

Dankeschön, Usch! :) Wie ich oben schon geschrieben habe, je weiter ich die Farbregler hochgeschoben habe, desto mehr haben sich die einzelnen Farben im Bild differenziert. Drum habe ich es so gelassen. Freut mich, dass es DIr auch gefällt!

Liebe Grüße,
