Tonight I am a bit miserable as I nurse a cold, so will just share some pictures of some of the beautiful brick buildings in Jena.
This brick building is huge. Just imagine how many bricks are in this building. What I really like is the combination of stone and brick to create the patterns. Especially at the corners of the building.
I like the solid colors of most of this building with the different accents that go along with the beautiful slate roof.
I have always liked the brickwork of the train station at Jena West. Here you see a combination of the older ornate section and a newer utilitarian section. However, if you look closely it also has some interesting patterns.
Look at the very ornate brick work of this building. So many patterns and color combinations. I sometimes think what it would be like to be a mason and create brick laying masterpieces like this. However, I am not sure I would like the back breaking work of hefting bricks and mortar all day.
This building has a simpler pattern, but is still beautiful with the accents around the windows. I really like the little capstone over each window and the door.
I hope you enjoyed all the bricks 🙂
