Photoblog: The City of Paderborn – Germany

Streetview with the typical German houses

Paderborn is a city in eastern North Rhine-WestphaliaGermany, capital of the Paderborn district. The name of the city derives from the river Pader and ‘born’, an old German term for the source of a river. The river Pader originates in more than 200 springs near Paderborn Cathedral, where St. Liborius is buried. I had a city tour in this city with great historical buildings.

The water comes through the stones of church and the square
and slowly runs into this pond.
That takes a couple of days so it is not fresh water anymore


Officially it’s a Cathedral but they still call it a Dom

Great city with lots of old buildings!!
