"Altobella Furiosa"

Wiesbaden had a guest yesterday - the organ "Altobella Furiosa" from Waldkirch. In 1999 Waldkirch celebrated its 200 year anniversary of organ manufacturers and for that special occasion they ordered a special organ to represent it. It's more like a full orchestra (like the mechanical orchestras I've shown you on my Rheingau Daily Photo blog). Later on, unfortunately not when I took the photo, I saw lots of kids gathered around it - they loved it!

By the way, if you look up from the organ you'll see that there are still soccer balls in the trees...

... almost forgot:
HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all the moms visiting my blog today!!!

Hi Nicola - I bet the adults enjoyed the organ too...I can immagine the Fiva fever in Germany, because we have the bid for 2010, and the fever is starting allready!
ps: I have 2 daughters, so i`m one of those who (hopefully) will be spoiled today :-)

I see the soccer balls and I love the Lego Organs! What is that building in the back? Is that a Coca Cola factory?
