Photographer's Note

This is the Baroque Castle Wöbbel in the very north-east of the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia. The castle is part of a beautiful ensemble composed of a church, an estate, a manor-house and a palace garden with wonderful old trees. The castle originally has been a moated castle. The moats have been filled up in 1850.

From 1584 to 1958 this ensemble belonged to the noble family von Donop which in 1690 built the here shown castle in place of a Renaissance building which was destroyed in the Thirty Years' War.

In workshop you can see the gateway in the outer bailey of the castle.
