The New Palace is a three-wing complex in the neo-renaissance style.
The castle courtyard opens to the east towards the park.
The connection to the park is formed by a huge castle ramp, creating a coherent connection between the park landscape and the building.The life of Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau, with his many escapades and contradictions, is illuminated from all sides in the permanent exhibition "Pückler" in the castle in Bad-Muskau, as is his involvement in the creation of the castle park.With 830 hectares, Muskauer Park is one of the largest English-style landscape parks in Europe.
Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau created it in the first half of the 19th century.
The special thing about it: Muskauer Park, officially called Fürst-Pückler-Park Bad Muskau, is a transnational World Heritage Site. One part of the park is on the German side, the other in Poland.

I added the boat trip in the Spreewald, but not recorded it.
Actually we wanted to explore the Spreewald by canoe ourselves, but fate was kind to us, as none had been free. Lucky for us, because I think we would have lost each other hopelessly, (like many others on the water) with the many branches and paths.
A wonderful adventure, worth it. The Spreewald can also be reached by bike or hike.
Pictures from No. 65.The year 1913 has a special place within the rose shows. On June 14, 1913, the rose and horticultural exhibition (RUGA) was opened in Forst (Lausitz) on the Wehrinsel, a public park that has existed since 1906 and the adjacent area leased to it.On an area of 17 hectares, around 1000 varieties of roses on tens of thousands of rose bushes. Emerging from a for the 25th anniversary of the throne of Kaiser Wilhelm II.Themed gardens such as spring, heather or dahlia gardens complement the actual rose garden and, together with the English-style park on two former river islands, form an ensemble that is enriched by numerous sculptures, ornamental fountains and water features.
In 2009 the park was named “Germany's most beautiful park” by an independent jury.

After a long break and rainy phase, it was a good idea to visit the classic car meeting in Baden Baden.Vintage cars from all over Europe transform the spa town into a large open-air museum of automotive history, in a green setting.
300 cars of which 80 different automobile brands were registered,
and were ready for inspection
All vehicles are more than fifty years old.

The sky didn't look very inviting, but we dared to do it with our visit from Bavaria. They are more hardened! 😀
Rastatt was our goal and in fact we arrived dry except for a short drizzle.
After the break, the weather became more and more beautiful and brighter.
The mushrooms sprout in the fields as if it was autumn.

Started in Riegel, right at the entrance is a wonderful free car park.
This round led us through magical places.
The landscape flies by, fields of diverse orchards alternate and magnificent vineyards lie on the left and right.
We just cycled behind the red signs that read KA.The first breather ☺️ took place in Riegel in a beer garden, as it had already been lunchtime. 🙈
After the first cool blonde we went on to Endingen.In the vineyards we found emerald lizards and nesting holes from the legendary birds that nest there at this time. And where there are breeding grounds, you will also find the birds. We were incredibly lucky, the bee-eaters sat in their multicolored plumage in droves in the treetops. An impressive spectacle took place in the sky.
For that reason alone, the tour was worth it!After cycling for a short time, we headed for the famous ice cream manufacturer Kaiserstühler Landeis and took care of the calorie budget
back into balance.The path leads us to Königschaffhausen and Sasbach, along the water to Sponeck Castle.
There we enjoyed it, from little Henri and his cousin Anna
to get an excellent and unique tour of the garden.
Burkheim impresses with its beautiful historic old town.
For Breisach, on the other hand, you should take a little more time, there would be the Stephansmünster on the Münsterberg, the lakeside promenade invites you with its numerous cafes.
Ihringen enchants with its countless wineries, snack bars or ostrich taverns that invite you to have a quarter or a snack.
Then it goes to the Tuniberg, the highest point of the route.
There you should enjoy the view of the nearby Freiburg, the Black Forest and the Vosges,
before the path leads to Eichstetten. There you should still visit the Eichelspitzturm. Unfortunately we were granted time.
A wonderful tour that is easy to classify.

From the Reiselfingen hiking car park, we followed
a piece through meadows and fields, that
Schluchtensteig stage 3, to Schluchsee.
However, since a bus transfer is no longer possible in the late Saturday evening,
we made a circular route out of it.Through the heart of the Wutach Gorge between
the Wutach and Schattenmühle.
In the nicest weather with sunshine, it is partly possible
adventurous down into the valley of the Wutach.
The paths are sometimes very narrow and secured with ropes.
We see quite thick and old trees, either still
gnarled to guard the path or have surrendered to a storm
and sometimes got stuck on the way.Soon the remains of the Räuberschlössle can be seen in front of us.
The Räuberschlössle stands on an 80m high rock
over one of the wildest and most impressive sections of the Wutach Gorge.
The Räuberschlössle was once built as a "normal" castle,
was then destroyed in the Peasants' War (16th century).The Schluchtensteig meanders on the steep slope of the mountain forest
around rocks and lichen-covered spruce trees past the
Stallegger Holzbrücke Bridge over the Wutach.
And past the small Stallegg river power station, the third oldest in Germany.
It was put into operation in 1895.At the confluence of the Rötenbach in the Wutach,
is a resting place. Here we pause again and
enjoy the idyllic setting before continuing.
We leave the Wutach Gorge at the confluence
the Haslach and now follow the Rötenbach Gorge,
who will be our companion from now on.
Once again we are adventurous and close to nature
on the way for the next few km.
We cross the Rötenbach several times through its gorge
and over wooden bridges, accompany the stream
on narrow paths following previous ones
Downpours, require surefootedness. Just lovely!
It is also very nice that the Rötenbach Gorge appears to be
is not so frequented by hikers,
like the Wutach Gorge.
The last part we hike again in colorful nature,
via meadow paths back to the starting point.

The hiking trail with its mighty red sandstone formations goes around the two of them
Wasgaudörfer Schwanheim and Darstein.
The Rimbach meanders through the valley that connects the two villages.
The "Pfälzer Rimbach-Steig" leads on mostly natural, often narrow paths and paths.
Past romantic meadows, uplifting views and impressive rock formations.

The Tainacher is one of the most beautiful premium trails I've hiked so far.
However, it is signposted with 11.5 km, but in the end it was more than 14 km.The path begins at the outdoor pool, where there are enough free parking spaces available.You go on forest paths and paths with several sandstone steps, those of bizarre rock formations
and mystical places are framed.
After about 5 km you come to a beautiful clearing with a view, the height of Emberg,
which is great for a break and enjoying the sun.
The path is lined with an exciting past, many viewpoints, highlights,
Benches in pristine nature and fairytale sculptures.
The end of the eventful hike is a nature path
which leads directly along the Teinach.A tour that I will be happy to repeat.
I recommend going the premium route in the direction described.Hereditary factor⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Ortenau meanders along the Kinzig and the beautiful Rhine plain. It impresses with its beautiful villages with many half-timbered houses and colorful, well-tended gardens. Started from Appenweier, in the direction of Ebersbach, Rammersweier, Fessenbach to Ortenberg Castle.
Continue over and through the vineyards to Gengenbach. The city is worth a visit at any time of the year. Cross the Kinzig and along it, past various lakes, decorated with art, back via Schutterwald.
