Baroque Castle I.

After the great success at the Neo-Classical castle, we drove to the next spot we had decided on. This one was a castle as well - actually more of a little palace. Historically, this castle was more of a princely residence than most other castles in the region that are often large farm houses that recieved an upgrade in the late 19th or early 20th century, which was fashionable at the time.
This one however is actually really old. The original castle was built as early as the 16th century. It was destroyed in the Thirty-Year-War but then rebuilt in the 18th century.
Unfortunately for us, the castle is being renovated, and there was no chance whatsoever of getting inside.
We tried and went around the building a couple of times, but we only managed to get a couple of outside shots.
