A Postcard from the Teutonic Knights

These days, I am finally finding the time to write and mail the postcards promised to supporters of this blog. I know that some of you have already been waiting for months.

But, as so often, it turns out that it was a good thing to wait!

Because I am currently in Bad Mergentheim, which has probably the most beautiful letterbox in Germany. So, a postcard mailed from here is something very special indeed.

This historic letterbox is situated outside the castle of the Teutonic Knights, a dubious gang of conspirators who nicked the Holy Grail during the crusades and then set half of Eastern Europe on fire, establishing a sad German tradition. That’s why the German Army still proudly displays the black-and-white cross on their tanks.

So, it may be that your postcard will have some blood on its hands. Or, if you are lucky, it will come with a drop from the Holy Grail. Either way, you can look forward to my article about Bad Mergentheim, a nice little town, which, to no fault of its own, is only burdened with the presence of the Teutonic Knights because they got kicked out everywhere else.

Illuminated penguins, Illuminati, can this be coincidence? Soon, you will find out! If the Knights don’t stop me…

    Fucking cunts!

    • That’s a very succinct summary of my opinion of the Teutonic Order, but, as always, my article will go more in depth.
      Honestly, I was a bit surprised by how positively they are still being portrayed around here, including in the museum.

  2. Looking forward to the article and postcard! My mailbox sadly can’t compete with the one therešŸ˜‚ It doesn’t have any adornments or even a lockšŸ˜² There might be a spider hanging out nearby…šŸ˜‚

  3. Many thanks, Andreas, for this interesting post about the Teutonic Order and Bad Mergentheim!:)

    • Well, the proper post with plenty more photos and information is yet to come… (Once I have digested all the information I collected.)
      But I will include plenty of hikes in the area, so it’s not all bloody history.
