On this page are Green Men in towns where either there are not enough to warrant a separate page or I have not yet done a complete search of the town. I am very grateful to my 'Green Man hunter' contacts and to my enthusiastic colleagues for their photos and information on Green Men that they have found in Germany. If you have found any Green Men in Germany, I would be most grateful for photos and information. Please email me using the contact page.
Altenberg Dom. There are two corbels here, opposite each other in the nave. I found these when I played a concert in the cathedral. Photo from Maddy Aldis-Evans Altenberg Dom. The second corbel. Photo by Maddy Aldis-Evans
Dissibodenburg, Klosterruine Odernheim. Photo by Harald Mayer Monica isn't sure where it is. It is either in Marienbaum, Emmerich Martuiskirche or Pfalzdorf. Photo by Hedwig Jessberger
Mainz St. Stefan Kirche Cloisters. Photo by Wietraud Becken-Bach Koenigslutter. I wonder if this is not a Green Man but rather a Hydrus. Stories about the Hydrus can be found in the Bestiaries. It represents Christ's victory over evil and is often seen on fonts as a symbol of salvations. Could the hares savaging a woman in the carving above also have Hydruses coming out of their mouths. The hard is a well documented symbol of lust and lascivious nature. Perhaps the Hydrus is trying to purify lust in this carving. Compare this to the very similar, though cruder carving in Nuernburg

Another Capital from Birg Gamburg an der Tauber. Here two Green Man images look out from either side of the Capital. Similar images can be seen for example in Quedlingburg.
