Just as a slight correction: the link leads to the Residence Palace in Munich. The Wittelsbach Palace (Palais Wittelsbach) was situated in the Brienner Straße and was not reerected after it was destroyed in the war. Some claim this was because it had served as the headquarters and torture prison of the German Gestapo (Secret Services) in Nazi-times.

I was wondering how you were able to make the picture of a hall with a cannon and a sledge at Schloss Zeil, Stefan. Since people are not allowed inside?

Any idea who are the painted images of in this picture? Saints maybe? Or anscestors?

--

The two small towers at Posenhofen are a bit too much Neo-something fo me, it doesn' t seem to fit with the rest of the castle IMO.

Burg Eltz is another amazing German Castle with a long and rich history. Located along the Mosel River, the castle according to their website:

Quote:
...has remained in the procession of the same family for over 800 years. The present owner of the castle, Dr. Karl Graf von und zu Eltz, known as Faust von Stromberg , lives in Eltville/Rhine. The family has had its main German residence there since the beginning of the 19th century.
Dr. Karl Graf von und zu Eltz represents the 33rd generation of the House of Eltz. He has undertaken the task of maintaining this national monument for the public, to preserve its structure and, following family tradition, pass it on to the 34th generation.
Images of Burg Eltz can be viewed here, here, here, and here

I found this image from this site, FuerstenFamilien.de

Here are some images of Friedenstein Schloss Gotha and Ehrenburg Schloss Coburg.

I also want to add more castles that I found. Again this is the orangerie at Schloss Berleburg.

Here is another link. This time the castle is Marksburg. The castle itself is quite impressive as well as its history. You might also want to check out theGerman Castle Association which aims to preserve and restore various castles in Germany.

Schloss Bückeburg



Each year, they organize impressive theme festivals. This year (May 22nd-25th), the festival is about Venice's Carnival and the Baroque Passion.
Here's a perspective over last years festivals:

Princes of Schaumburg-Lippe: Schloss Bückeburg

Thanks Elsa
While we're on the subject of the Schaumburg-Lippes, here is an aerial picture taken at the time of Fürst Alexander's wedding last year (the white marquee can be seen on the left). This home/schloss/palace/complex is quite something:

Indeed it is!
In this photo of yours, we can see the "inner patio", which is absolutely gorgeous... as everything else in this palace.

Schloss Arolsen in Bad Arolsen, of the Fuersts of Waldeck u. Pyrmont:

Facade from a distance

Great website with pictures of the castle, here.

From this wikipedia page:

Quote:
The Baroque stately home, Schloss Arolsen, belonging originally to the Princes of Waldeck-Pyrmont with its imposing construction was built in the years 1713-1728 by architect Julius Ludwig Rothweil. Of particular importance are the ceiling paintings by the Italian artist Carlo Ludovici Castelli, and the outstanding stucco works by Andrea Gallasini.
Facade at a closer inspection

Is the furst the only owner of the castle or other family members own portion of it? Does the family own other castles? Since the erbgraf has just daughters do you think it is more likely that they will inherited the castle or that it will be bequeathed to the succesor in the princely title?

My favourite German castle is the moated castle at Glücksburg in the very north of Germany, and the seat of the Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg line - close relations of Prince Philip who still visits there.
