Soul Taker Secrets – A Unique Place For A Meeting

In one of my books in ‘The Council Of Twelve’ series, I have set up a meeting in the ‘Hundertwasser’ church in Baernbach, Austria.

Despite my books being fantasy books, there is the occasional real existing location on Earth mentioned within the stories. This is one of them.

The church, designed by ‘Friedensreich Hundertwasser’, is a small, but impressive piece of architecture that I admire deeply. I’m not a big fan of ‘Hundertwasser’, but he did this design right.

“Hundertwasser stood out as an opponent of “a straight line” and any standardization, expressing this concept in the field of building design. His best-known work is the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, which has become a notable place of interest in the Austrian capital, characterized by imaginative vitality and uniqueness.” (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedensreich_Hundertwasser)

When I was there for the first time, one thing impressed me most: the peacefulness of the church and its surroundings. It is unbelievable how wonderfully calm and protected the place is. Despite the famous name of the architect, the church is a cool, comfortable place to sit and rest, inviting, without being overloaded with gold appliques, It’s more a work of natural materials that underline the connection between our creator and nature.

That was one of the reasons why I picked this location to showcase in one of my stories.

I don’t want to give away too much here, since the book, where the church is mentioned, will be published at a later time.

But one thing might be interesting to you at this point: It was not a ‘Council Member’ who demanded this location for the meeting… it was the ‘other side’…

Have you ever picked a particular spot or happening and used it in one of your stories or books? If yes, why did you do that and what was it that made this particular location so unique? Let us know in the comments. We’re curious.

    1. I figured, the beauty of the location should remain. If I had added a fight to the scene, I might have considered adjusting it a bit, but in my book it’s ‘only’ for a meeting. I figured, I’ll take it justice this way.
