Maybe this place wasn´t in the list when you started planning your trip to Germany, but just because it´s not so well known as others. However, this remarkable baroque palace really deserves a visit, despite being a outstanding reconstruction after the damages caused in the...More

This palace is huge, but only a few parts have been fully restored. It´s an elegant reminder of war´s insanity, that makes you sad to learn Hitler was dead and Germany had already surrendered when this mansion was bombed. In March it was very easy...More

The museum parts were so surprising. There musical instruments on display with ladies there to play them. The actual palace is under renovation but the musical museums are worth the trip to see.

The exterior is nice but not fancy like some places but still has a charm. The interior has been restored in a conservative way trying to recreate the way it was. There aren't a lot of furniture items but those that are on display are...More
