    Here is a small teahouse after the Chinese model on the mountain trail in the park Altenstein. It stands on a ridge, from which you can enjoy a great view of the park and the towns of Schweina and Bad Liebenstein.

    Cute little teahouse with possibility for rest within (beer table set). The explanations to the Chinoiserie and the connection to Kassel is quite interesting.

    "The" Tent of the Tent "and the" Chinese Cottage "(built around 1800) were curiosities in keeping with the times.This summer, a Turkish tent was set up on the large lawn near the castle, serving as a shade dispenser for the guests, following the contemporary tastes of Chinoiserie The construction of a Chinese house on a rugged rock tower was commissioned.The building is reached via a stairway carved into the rock with 33 steps, as a special ornament was a carillon made of Lauscha glass and in the rock an Aeolian harp was installed in a suitable place, so During the Aeolian Harp, where the Aeolian Harp was no longer present and would be ineffective due to the tree growth, the rebuilt Chinese Cottage was handed over to the Foundation on 29 November 2011.

    The Chinese house, a park architecture corresponding to the Chinese fashion of the late 18th century, was built on the hollow stone in 1800.
    In 1800, Duke Georg I of Saxony-Meinigen had a Chinese tea house built on a rock on the Altenstein Zechstein reef.
    This half-timbered house adorned a curved, protruding roof with a colorful Chinese dragon.
    In the eaves were small, colored bells that the wind made to ring.
    With the end of the monarchy in 1918, the Altenstein also began to decline.
    The Cinesian house was demolished in 1923 because it was in disrepair.
    The building was restored by 2011 in the historical silhouette of its predecessor, which was demolished in 1923.
    In the interior of the building there are several information boards, information on the history of the origins of the Chinese house and other park architectures of the landscape park.
    The height of the rock together with the tea house is approx. 23 m.

    In 1800, Duke Georg I of Sachsen-Meinigen had a Chinese tea house built on the Hohlen Stein plateau, which was demolished in 1923 because it was in disrepair. The Chinese house was an important part of the system of visual relationships and scenarios within the park, so that in 2011 the structure was restored in the historical silhouette of its demolished predecessor.
    Incidentally, the height of the rock, together with the tea house, is approx. 23m.

    I discovered a special feature while looking at the historical pictures: On one of the pictures the caption reads "The Japanese house near Altenstein". Today that would be a diplomatic affront 😊😊😊.

    Not only the location of the tea house is interesting. Also the story of how it came about, which you can find in the house. In addition, you have a wonderful view of Schweina from up there.

    Totally beautiful view of Bad Liebenstein. And you shouldn't let the closed door keep you from operating the door handle. Because you can go into the house and look from the other side on the ledge in the other direction. Really beautiful up there.

    The "hollow stone" on which the Chinese house was built was a special attraction on the south side of the park.Its views of the Werra valley, the nearby Rhön or across the valley were well known and popular with spa guests.The name "Hohler Stein" refers to a large depression on the north-eastern flank of the rock, which centuries ago was mockingly referred to as the "Dragon's Cave".A narrow crevice led through the rock and was equipped with the Aeolian harp, which is no longer on site.You reach the tea house via steps, you can also go inside the house. Actually there was a beer tent set inside as a large table with 2 benches, but it was probably taken out by Corona.
    At the top of the tea houses you have an excellent view. Splendid. 🤩
