Palace by the lake

Another fave. This is Monrepos, still owned by the Royal House of Württemberg.

remember that room,
there is a washbasin with gold faucets, I was with a group and an arthistory professor and I touched the hot or cold faucet and at dinner it was said as a general remark that we were not allowed to touch anything in any room we visited because if everybody did so, through wear and tear etc.

Yes thanks for that Warren. When I went to see it, I remember thinking the top looked very low..

Don't worry Warren, I'll have the stone work cleaned before I move in.. (Well, at least before I have you over for coffee on the front lawn)

Some of my favorites:

Small-scale castle in the Irish countryside: Craigdun Castle


Belgian Castle:

Batenborch



I still think that Neuschwanstein Castle is my favorite...I remember the view around it is extrodinary! And the white it fabulous! The snow-capped mountains and the changing leaves. Great colors. Beautiful photo!

Thanks a beautiful post card. Thanks for posting it. I too would not be able to write on it. I would keep them with my stash of other postcards. :p You're very lucky to have been there.

if you want to see the castle inside you could rent the movie Ludwig by Visconti. I like the fake lake/grotto where he would peddle in in a swanlike boat while listening to wagner.
lots of people like Neuschwanstein because disney modeled the sleeping beauty castle after it and it reminds them of their childhood

Here is a pic of the Neuschwanstein grotto, plus a pic of Ludwig's gaudy bedroom at Linderhoff...

went to linderhoff too, the thing I remember most was the enormous waiting line (a few buses with visitors from Japan) just to get into a sort of small bonbonbox.

The grotto looks better in the movie when you can see it "alive". Have not been to Herrenchiemsee but love the scene where romy schneider who plays sissi for the last time has a fit of laughter when she sees the Hall of Mirrors which is a copy of the one in versaille, because of the extravagance.

Loved the palace in munchen because they told us it had been totally bombed at the end of WWII and a room a year was restored according to small swatches of wall paper and material they still had.

Leeds Castle has always been my personal favorite. It seems so peaceful there.

Interiors of Castles and Other Royal Homes

Hi everyone!
I was wondering if we could start a thread with any photos of the interiors of palaces, royal homes, etc. I know the pics are probably few and far between but I'd love to see what we could come up with!

Thanks!

but what about dinning rooms, ball room and reception rooms? what takes place during a dinner? what determins who sits by whom? how many courses do they eat when dinning? when are reception rooms use for? when the royals have balls, what do they dance to? do they waltz, minuet or do they get down-n-boggie? are there any pics of the happens at any of these events? if so, who takes the pictures?
just a few questions, i hope someone can answer.

I think it depends on the occasion, but if it's a normal official dinner - I would say it's the Court protocol, the country in question's Order of Precedence/Rank/State Calendar (it varies what kind of form for the official rank of people that is published in and how it's done) together with any special wishes of the hosts and the Court's decisions while doing the seat placement.

It depends on the occasion. And I guess the tradition varies between the different countries.

In Sweden when the King and Queen host their official dinners (there's a number of official dinners, diplomat receptions etc per year), there's usually a three course menu - entrée, main course, dessert.

thx everyone for the answers to my questions. all of the pics are amazing, while looking at the pics of the spanish castle's dinning room. i counted five drinking glasses at each place setting, thats a lot of drinking going on and the dining table is so long. i bet u could fit at least 75 people at that table. just think if u were mad an anyone u could sit them at the oppsite end of the table and it would be impossible to see them because of the distance and table decorations.
but again, all of the pic are very pretty
