This year we have found the ideal location to celebrate our New Year. We will move to Germany north of Hamburg. The hall of this neo-Baroque castle will leave you speechless. Immense and illuminated by a beautiful skylight. The walls are still covered with an elegant wood paneling. There is also a beautiful fireplace to welcome guests and a pendulum unfortunately empty.
It will no longer mark New Year’s midnight as it used to. A majestic wooden staircase leads to the upper floor from which in some corridors you can overlook the entrance hall. It seems to be in the lobby of a train station from the beginning of the century.
This castle is located in a very small village and was built by a nobleman in 1848 – 1849 as a neo-gothic style building on a high base, with a flat roof, battlements and corner towers. In 1902 the castle was completely renovated in a neo-baroque style and a high panoramic tower was added on the north-eastern side. In 1945 the castle was expropriated by the nobles who lived there for almost a hundred years.
Later it was inhabited by several families and in 1992 the palace was sold. After this a great restoration began which has been stalled for a long time, due to lack of funding.
