Like a fairytale...



This is the wall arond a small Castle in Röderhof, near Halberstadt, Germany.
In 1992, I was once in here, it was very dilapidated and overgrown, like Sleeping Beauty.
It belonged to a Artist Club and here was a gallery.
It was a beautiful, haunted place, like a fairy tale ...
Since then I have often dreamed of returning, but without a car was not possible.
Now I've finally seen it again (thanks to our friend with his car)!
But it has been sold and is now privately owned.
One can only furtively looking through the gate and I did ...


We took a walk around the wall and it is truly a magical place:
on every corner was another light mood.

  6. Yes a very "magical" looking place. The stone wall, the Ivy, the Iron Gate all are very charming. I would enjoy walking around it too. It's nice to know someone is taking care of it now.

  8. I just love those old castles. I visited my sister in Heidelberg a few years back, and we took a weekend tour of some castles along the Rhine. The beauty is overwhelming! We don't have anything nearly so old here!
