In my opinion, Germany has the best palaces and castles in the world. From medieval castles, gigantic and opulent baroque palaces, to historicist gems, you Germans have it all. I'm kinda jealous...

Also, I have a question about a baroque palace in Saxony, Hubertusburg. From what I understood, it is the largest palace in Saxony, but the interior was almost completely destroyed by Prussians, only the Royal Chapel still stands in all its glory. Are there any documents from which we can see how the palace originally looked like, or is it unknown since it was destroyed few centuries ago? If there are documents from which the interior can be reconstructed, is there any society that's supporting it? I stumbled upon a photo of it few days ago and the exterior was just beautiful, probably one of my favourite in Germany. I was more than sad when I found out the interior was ruined. Thanks in advance.

my english is not the best, but I hope is possible to understand. My favorite Ruine from a castle is frauenstein in the eastern part of the "Erzgebirge". The castle has parts from 1200 - 1470. After 1470 in Saxany was peace and so was no reason for new parts for canons and so on. The first town was in the valley. After 1470 the build a new town. Around 1570 was the castle to old for good living and so Frauenstein get a new Renaissance Chateau between the castle and the town. In 1728 was a big fire and town, castle and chateau was Ruins. The Chateau and the town was rebuilt, but the castle. You see... Of my homepage arstempano you can go around with nearly sixty 360° Panoramen. My Hope fore the future is to make a 3D-Modell from Frauenstein around 1720 and 1470. You can also find 24 old postcards.

I really like the Schwerin Palace which is a quite nice and unique example of French Renaissance architecture in Germany.


(by Flickr user sumo4fun)

In contrast to its exterior style it contains a few impressive neo-classical rooms (the interior design was done among others by Friedrich August Stüler and Heinrich Strack)
