We visited today Pfaffenthal 1867. In an effort to accurately recreate a portrayal of Luxembourg in 1867 the creator, Hauptmann Weidert, has done a remarkable job putting together this historical role-play sim. Winding roads, clustered house dwellings, bridges and little stores of all kinds fill this place. All items on the sim are time-appropriate and fit together so very beautifully. In a note card at the landing one learns that [t]he 1867 story aspires to explore its [Luxembourg’s] history, trying to meet not only its famous characters, but also brave little people. Luxembourg invites us into its contrasting topography, steep, leading us down hidden paths were we discover its mysteries and its treasures. Stories, legends, architectures, casemates, uptown ,downtown, roads and bridges offer us an exciting decor. It still has a story to tell. And it is through women and men that lived in the past, and those who live in the present, with different points of view, with divers knowledge, that we could revel in its grace, survey its enigmas, mourn its misfortunes. As with most role play sims, there are a few guidelines, one of them being to change into time-appropriate clothing; free outfits are available at the landing point. It takes some time to do this, but it was worth it in the end. This is a great place to take photographs; head over and take a look if you haven’t already!
