So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Last Friday after helping to get some hay in for a friend, Dave and I were driving home and noticed the smoke on the horizon. As we got to Tamsweg, the town was full of smoke. We later saw on the news that the biggest hotel in the town, The Gambswirt  had a fire in the roof. 300 firemen were in attendance and the fire was out by Saturday morning. It was an electrical fault on the third floor.

The Gambswirt is now a shell, with water damage meaning that the entire insides must be stripped out but the outside must stay the same as it is under ‘Denkmal Schutz’ or cultural protection. So a total rebuild within new walls. Does that make it a fake relic, a new creation or just a relic????

  6. How interesting story on relic! I hope it gives rise to a new creation, for change is the nature of this life. Old must give rise to new, as they say in scriptures.

    Do visit my ‘relic’ too 🙂 Thanks for sharing it.
