This is a green alley in a park somewhere in Kleve, Germany. As I once wrote, I live nearby Dutch – German border. Kleve is a little lovely German town situated 40 km from where I live. I come there at least once a month doing my groceries and when the weather is nice, I love to take a walk in this park.
This idyllic park is accessible from the Tiergarten Strasse. The Tiergarten Strasse is part of Via Romana: the route of the Romans along the Rhine river connecting Colonia (Cologne, Germany) to Noviomagus (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) in the year 100. Actually in front of this green lush alley, there is a statue of a Roman gladiator referring to the Roman era. From time to time I imagine how it must have been like at that time, making and maintaining the way for the troops to pass along.
Unfortunately I can’t find any further information about this beautiful park. So enjoy the picture. It is so serene there, an ideal place to wander around.
