Photographer's Note

The early classicist style Castle Monaise is located near the district of Trier-Zewen. It was constructed by the French architect Francois Ignace Mangin between 1779 and 1783 as a summer residence. Spacious reception rooms are situated on the main floor of this summer palace. Additionally it was equipped with a large terrace and an outside staircase.
The building in the style of Louis XVI is surrounded by a sandstone balustrade and four corner pavilions. After several changes of owner it was disused for many years. Renovation always failed due to lack of funding. Not until subsidies from the German Conservation Foundation, the state of Rheinland-Pfalz and the Federal Interior Ministry were made available in 1992 could the castle be restored. The castle has been used as a gourmet restaurant since 1997 and the grounds as an equestrian park for the Post Office Sports Club.
