I note from the Nobilia website an article in a German news outlet that the Wummehof has been sold.

(see Wümmehof in Bremen-Borgfeld ist verkauft: Haus Hohenzollern trennt sich vom langjährigen Wohnsitz des Kaiser-Enkels Prinz Louis Ferdinand | Bremen)

If I recall correctly this property was acquired after World War 2 by Louis Ferdinand.

Does anyone know why Louis Ferdinand chose to live in Bremen rather than anywhere else?

Any idea where the Prince and Princess of Prussia will live now?

Harold, Prince Louis Ferdinand's obituary stated:
At the end of the Second World War, Prince Louis Ferdinand had to flee with his family from his Eastern estates to West Germany and made the Wummehof in Bremen his private residence.

Thanks for the reply. Will the Prince and Princess continue to live in Bremen? Their plans may not have been announced.

A short article about Burg Namedy and it's owner, Princess Heide, widow of Prince Godehard of the Hohenzollern Sigmaringen line. He was a grandson of Princess Josephine of Belgium.

Prince Godehard-Friedrich of Hohenzollern (1939-2001) was the youngest son of Prince Albrecht of Hohenzollern (1898-1977) and of his wife, née Ilse-Margot von Friedeburg (1901-1988). In turn, Prince Albrecht was the only son of Prince Karl Anton of Hohenzollern (1868-1919) and of Princess Josephine of Belgium (1872-1958, sister of King Albert I). Prince Karl Anton was the youngest brother of Fürst Wilhelm of Hohenzollern and of King Ferdinand of Romania.

A year after the construction of the Golden Gallery, King Frederick II decorated a second, four-room apartment, to house his collection of French paintings rather than to live in.
Sans Souci
The Concert Room is an example of the "Frederick" style of Rococo. It is decorated with paintings, sculptures, furniture, and handcrafts.
The Concert Room was the setting for musical evenings in which the King was often a performer.

Sophie Charlotte, wife of King Frederick I, had a lively interest in sciences, literature, and Italian chamber music.
There are cymbals and portraits of Italian composers in her ooms at Charlottenburg.
The Red Chamber in the King's suite derived its name from the red damask wallcovering with rich gold ornamental braiding.

The Imperial Hohenzollern House of Germany will receive 1,2 million euro for the properties taken by the state after 1918:
