Here are some photos I took on our walks around Osnabrück’s city center (Innenstadt) on Thursday, March 24, 2012:
This old Dominican church, now a gallery of modern art, was right across the street from our hotel.
This poor soul was one of several statues outside the former church now art gallery.
Walking down Bier Strasse.
Some of the buildings in the city center were built in the 1500s.
Walking down Krahn Strasse.
Leysieffer Cafe and Chocolate shop
A nice blending of old and new buildings in the shopping district.
Weltbild (Worldview) is a publishing and book store chain.
Yes, that’s a Pizza Hut!
Reno is a Women’s shoe store.
That’s the steeple of Marienkirche in the background.
Holthaus women’s fashions.
Grosse Strasse is a major shopping street in the pedestrian zone.
Coming up to a street artist.
The artist is using a variety of pastels.
Some of the artist’s works.

In my next posting I will write about the tour we took on Thursday afternoon with our guide Carol Saint-Clair of Historic Osnabrück and I will show some photos I took of the old City Hall and the Market Square around St Mary’s Church (Marienkirche).
