The Bicycle Seat

I just got these pictures and I thought I should show them to you.

The pictures has been taken in Ellgau, a  village near Augsburg, Bavaria.

Ellgau, in former times Elgen or Elfgin, has been first founded on documents in 1126 as the stately home of the Constables of Oberndorf. These Constables committed the Castle of Ellgau to the Bishop Wolfhard of Augsburg (1288 – 1302) in 1299. Later Ellgau belongs to the property of the Reichsmarschalls of Pappenheim and in 1753 the village has been purchased by the Fugger. The Church of St. Ulrich with its gothic paintings reminds to the Monastery St. Ulrich and Afra in Augsburg.
