Posts Tagged ‘ZIM’

We have a lot of snow here in Würzburg. On the terrace of the outdoor facilities at the centre for internal medicine of the university clinics of Würzburg (ZIM) is ordinarily in front of house A4 at level 0 a Chartres labyrinth. But this is completely covered by a blanket of snow. So I had the chance to walk directly at this point a snow labyrinth.

The 11 paths for the Chartres labyrinth are already a little more complicated and not so practical in the snow. Hence, I have decided to make a classical 7-circuit labyrinth. It looks a little bit crooked, but the design is correct.
At the moment it is not recommended to walk in light shoes. The snow is still quite deep. And some day the Chartres labyrinth will appear again.

Maybe I should have followed the article of Grahame Gardner from Scotland a little better?

After the ZIM (centre for internal medicine of the university clinics of Würzburg) takes up his service during these days, the labyrinth on the terrace of the outdoor facilities will be open to the public too.

The hospital’s pastoral care had wished a labyrinth. It was built by a landscape architect as the type Chartres rather sumptuously with true to dimension granite stones.

As a Labyrinthologist I looked a little more exactly on it and some things struck me. However, first the joy predominates about a new labyrinth  in Würzburg and at this place. It is definitely a good thing and now will be able to unfold his beneficial effects to all.

On the open house I was there and have made some observations. The adults discuss first of all, the children start to run.

Labyrinth at the ZIM

There is a new labyrinth in Würzburg.
Not yet officially and also not yet “inaugurated”, but I found it in the meantime.
I had heard of it and all my efforts to get some details or even a plan, failed.
When I visited a patient in the ZOM (Center operational medicine of the university clinics of Würzburg) I could discover it by looking out of a window. The labyrinth is part of the outside facilities of the ZIM (Center internal medicine of the university clinics of Würzburg), which is at present still under construction. Upon its completion in 2009 it will be publicly available.
The labyrinth is a Chartres type, built from exactly cut bright granite stones for the ways and from dark basalt paving-stones for the dividing lines.
Here you will get at first a small foretaste with some photos.
