  • Der Don

    The landscape garden Kammerbusch is a worthwhile destination. Created in the middle of the 19th century by a family of industrialists called Schleicher, one can admire various smaller buildings and ruins, and on the basis of the memorial stones for Bismarck, Moltke and the three emperors 1871-1918 and for the 8 (!) World War 1 - war dead of the Schleicher family think about the extent to which national enthusiasm can lead to destruction.
    The area fell from the middle of the thirties of the 20th century and was badly damaged during World War II (see footprints on the statue Wilhem I). At the beginning of the 1960s, ammunition and equipment (eg steel helmets) could be found there.
    In addition, one can also enjoy that since the beginning of the 21st century, the current owners and owners of a perennial nursery in the neighboring town of Heistern strive to add horticultural accents.

    Very well maintained park with surprises behind every curve.

    The landscape garden Kammerbusch was created from 1851 by an industrialist family Schleicher. The "Karlsburg" was designed as a guesthouse according to the historicizing taste of the time. The building fabric has two world wars and lack of care but failed, last remaining parts (tower, arches) collapsed in the recent past. The remaining residues were saved. An attempt of reconstruction and use for z. B. Cultural events failed due to the veto of the authorities.

    In some cases only the foundation walls of the castle are left, but you definitely get an impression of the size. Back then, the towers certainly offered great searches about the area and the accolade was celebrated.
