Nothing raises the hair on your arms or neck like a really good ghost story. Shivering with fright around a crackling campfire or in a dimly lit room during a slumber party is a rite of passage for young children.
Today, Western culture is experiencing a heightened interest in the paranormal, evidenced by the proliferation of paranormal television programs, research groups, movies and genre novels – think Vampire Diaries. Not all travelers are looking for a sunny seaside resort or an exquisite shopping experience. Some are intrigued by creepy legends, haunted castles, crypto zoology and strange folklore, all widely available throughout Europe. While America has its share of haunted locations, Europe is unparalleled as a paranormal destination. From England’s famous crop circles and Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster, to legendary Romanian vampires and Germany’s Frankenstein Castle, the European continent is full of spooky locations.
Haunted places in Germany:
- B215: (between Stedebergen and Dörverden) near Verden/Aller is known to be a road with strange happenings. Fact to this day is, that this stretch of road has had more accidents (with deaths) then any other area of this road. Witnesses tell of a white lady appearing on the road between 2 and 3 am if you are driving to fast. It’s unknown if this apparition is suppose to be a warning to drivers or if it actually caused the accidents.
- Babenhausen Barracks (German : Babenhausen Kaserne) – now a museum – The ghosts of German soldiers, some in World War II era uniforms, have been reported. Lights are said to turn off and on by themselves and voices are heard in the basement. Footsteps and commands are allegedly heard at night, supposedly without physical cause. Legend has it that if a soldier happens to visit the museum and pick up a telephone, a woman will at times be heard “talking backwards”, unintelligible, in neither German nor English. The town was the site of a witch burned at the stake in the 19th century, and her ghost is said to have seduced, and then killed, several German soldiers since then.
- Bernkastel-Kues: Cemetery: At this cemetery, you may see The White Lady of Bernkastel-Kues with a long white dress floating from one to another. The story is that at times she cries. However, another story about this ghost concerns a hunter. He was terrified when he first saw the ghost and saw at it. The next day he was taken to Koblenz, a military hospital, with swollen legs and a high fever. He was rambling on and on about a white lady that attacked him. He died.
What are ghosts?
Based on the title of this website Ghosts! Are they real?, you’ll know that it’s about the reality of ghosts, and haunting’s. To be honest, nobody knows with absolute certainty whether entities such as ghosts are real or not. But if we make the assumption for a few moments that ghosts are real. Then, in my opinion the next logical question to ask is. What are ghosts? What are these ghosts, that haunt our homes and scare us in the middle of the night? The simple answer to this question is that, ghosts are the disembodied spirits or souls of once living persons, persons who now walk the night and intrude into our nightmares and fantasies. This definition, is not very satisfying to anyone, believer or skeptic. Most paranormal researchers believe there are two distinct types of ghosts, the residual ghost and the intelligent ghost.
The first type of ghost would be that of a residual ghost. It is a type of ghost, that is not real in any empirical or physical manner. I would not refer to this type of ghost as a spirit of a once living person, because the essence, soul or energy that animated that person in life would not be present. It would not have any intelligence, personality or physical mass and it would not be able to manifest itself at will, nor would it be able to interact with the living in any meaningful way.
A ghost of this type would very much be like watching a motion picture, that has an actor who is now deceased. The only real difference, it would be more akin to a 3 dimensional holographic projection of that actor. It, the ghost would be like an image of that once living person that somehow imprinted itself upon the physical environment.
