«Mi jardín es mi corazón»: Príncipe von Pückler-Muskau

Muskau, su ópera prima, ha sido declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO, y su obra tardía, Branitz, es una verdadera joya: el príncipe Hermann von Pückler-Muskau fue un aventurero, un vividor y un «dandy», y se convirtió en uno de los artistas de jardines con más genio de su época, aun sin ser profesional.

Babelsberg Palace and Park are located in the district of the same name in Potsdam, the state capital of Brandenburg. This summer residence for the future Kaiser Wilhelm I was built in 1833. Many of the original furnishings remain intact and reflect the dominance of neo-Gothic at the time.

Situated in the Thuringian Forest not far from Erfurt, this two-storey, neo-Renaissance palace is at the heart of an idyllic country park boasting a waterfall and natural cave. From this former summer residence of the Dukes of Saxe-Meiningen and its park, you can enjoy wonderful views as far as the Rhön hills.
