The Zwiebelmusterhaus in Sank Pölten surprised me with its wall decoration of 168 plates. Later I learned the Zwiebelmuster is a pretty famous porcelain tableware pattern for dishware.
The Zwiebelmuster saw its first production in the German manufacture of Meissen. In English, this pattern is named Blue Onion. It is a further development of Asian works.
Sculpture of a Saint
The Zwiebelmusterhaus displays not only plates. It also shows the sculpture of a Saint. This is a common decoration in Catholic parts of Austria. You often see such statues in the corner of a building or a niche above the door.

At one of the oldest squares in Goslar you can see these strange faces. Personally the reminded me more on faces known from overseas than on German ones. The German name of the square is Schuhhof. During Christmas time a sort of Christmas wood is placed on this square.
Some facades I came across near the railway station of Brno. In cities with railway stations built around 1900 one can see a lot of fascinating architecture near these stations. Therefore I love to stroll around these quarters and to take photos like these ones.
