    Magnificent view of MarienburgMarieburg Castle is a palace, which was built by King George V of Hanover from 1858 to 1869 as a summer residence, hunting lodge and later widow's residence. It was a gift to his wife, Queen Marie, on her 39th birthday on April 14, 1857. Wikipedia

    I have been here for so many years. But I have never seen the prince. Supposedly he is at home when the flag is blowing on the tower. Let's have a look .....

    "Once upon a time there was a king who gave his married couple a castle with 160 rooms, 30-meter-high lookout towers, a chapel and stables." This is exactly how the story of Marienburg Castle begins.

    If you drive from the south in the direction of Hanover, the castle sees you standing on a densely wooded mountain from afar. Today, the picturesque building in the Calenberger Land is a museum with sumptuous rooms and a magnificent library.

    Visitors can visit the castle's interior during a one-hour guided tour or various theme tours. You can see historic furniture, paintings and art-historical rarities from the possession of the royal Guelph family.

    A fantastic view if you go by bike to Hannover. A detour is worth the historic walls and inventory to see.

    Since 2004 it is privately owned by Ernst August Prinz von Hannover junior. In 2018, plans to sell to the public sector were announced, which wanted to provide for a purchase for a comprehensive renovation (Wikipedia).
