Arthur, thank you for your kind words, I´m glad you like it.

Greetings, Peter

Peter, sorry for my late answer, but I didn´t have much time for PA during my holiday... The castle is a museum of agriculture today, mostly representing the history of the last 60 years when Germany was divided. In the GDR this castle was used as the center of so called a farming "Kombinat". There are many rooms showing the life as it was in the GDR, an interesting view back into history and old engines like tractors etc. I took a lot of pictures there, maybe I´ll post some of them during the next days.

Greetings, Peter

Hallo Peter! Sehr schönes Foto! Schönes Schlößchen! War da auch noch nicht! Ich hoffe es hat sich insgesamt gelohnt? War letztens mal im Unstruttal, war auch nicht übel, siehe Bildchen! Viele Grüße aus Thüringen!

Schönes Bild, Peter! Besonders neckisch finde ich die Blume im Vordergrund! Idyllisch gelegenes Schloss! Liebe Grüsse, May

May, wie schön, dass Du Dich mal wieder meldest! Ich selbst hatte die letzten Wochen auch eher wenig Zeit für PA, war oft nur zum Hochladen drin... Freut mich, dass Dir das Schloss gefällt, es ist ein sehr interessantes landwirtschaftliches Museum mit viel DDR-Geschichte, das selbst unsere Kinder (10,13 und 15 Jahre alt) begeistert hat.

Liebe Grüße, Peter
