Whenever I have got the time I head off with my camera in pursuit of new inspiration and the perfect photo. In autumn 2012 this led me to wonderful Weesenstein Palace. The illusionistic paintings all over the front of the castle create the impression of being in a miniature world. Even a lot of the windows are just painted on. The lovingly tended garden invites to stroll and enjoy the calm.
