the beautiful #garden of #Herrenhausen #Castle in #Hanover #Germany, the Herrenhausen Gardens (#German:# Herrenhäuser #Gärten)..

The Great Garden owes much of its aesthetics to Sophia of Hanover, who commissioned the French gardener Martin Charbonnier. As its name implies, it is indeed a large garden, comprising 50 hectares of lawns, hedges, walkways, and statues arranged in strict geometrical patterns. The centerpiece of the garden was once the Herrenhausen Castle, which suffered immense damage during World War II (the Royal Air Force were requested by the British Royal Family not to attack the Castle, but in fact it was hit by bombs during an air raid in 1943). The castle’s ruins were almost completely torn down after the war; the outside staircase once leading up to the castle’s entrance was salvaged from the debris and moved next to the #Orangerie building where it can be seen today. In 2009, it was decided to rebuild the castle. Herrenhausen #Palace was reopened on 17 January 2013. -wikipedia.com

the lovely #Zwinger #palace.. lucky to get inside and see the view on top of the structure for free 😊, but I guess that is always open to public for free though except the gallery and museum. 😉

This royal #Zwingergarten, a #garden used to supply the court, still fulfilled one of its functions, as indicated by the name, as a narrow defensive area between the outer and inner defensive walls. -wikipedia.com

remnants of the past.. I can’t get over on how lovely Dresden is. 😧 wishing to see those beautiful #architecture once again.

The #Zwinger (Der #Dresdner Zwinger) is a #palace in #Dresden, eastern #Germany, built in #Rococo style and designed by court #architect #Matthäus Daniel #Pöppelmann. It served as the #orangery, exhibition #gallery and #festival arena of the Dresden Court.

The location was formerly part of the Dresden fortress of which the outer wall is conserved. The name derives from the German word Zwinger (an enclosed killing ground in front of a #castle or city gate); it was for the cannons that were placed between the outer wall and the major wall. The Zwinger was not enclosed until the #Neoclassical building by #Gottfried #Semper called the Semper Gallery was built on its northern side.

The #Semperoper is the #opera #house of the #Sächsische #Staatsoper #Dresden (#Saxon #State Opera) and the concert hall of the Sächsische #Staatskapelle Dresden (Saxon State #Orchestra). It is also home to the Semperoper ballet. The building is located near the #Elbe River in the historic centre of Dresden, #Germany.

The opera house was originally built by the #architect #Gottfried #Semper in 1841. After a devastating fire in 1869, the opera house was rebuilt, partly again by Semper, and completed in 1878. The opera house has a long history of premieres, including major works by #Richard #Wagner and #Richard #Strauss. -wikipedia

#Skokloster #Castle is located on #Lake #Mälaren between #Stockholm and #Uppsala. It was built in the #Baroque style between 1654 and 1676 by the wealthy military commander and count Carl Gustaf Wrangel. The castle was designed mainly by #architect Caspar Vogel, but other architects involved were Jean de la Vallée and Nicodemus Tessin the Elder. When Wrangel died, the castle passed into the hands of the #Brahe family. In 1967 the castle and its contents were sold by the family to the #Swedish government; the family still resides here but part of the estate is now run as a #museum.

The castle is a #monument to the Swedish Age of Greatness, a period in the middle of the 17th century when #Sweden expanded to became one of the major powers in #Europe.

taken during my early evening walked around the western part of Uppsala.. ♡

the capital of #Uppsala #County and the fourth largest city of #Sweden, after #Stockholm, #Gothenburg and #Malmö.

The #Fyris river (#Fyrisån) neatly divides the city into two different parts: the #historic quarter to the west of the river and the modern administrative, residential and commercial city centre to the east. Most of the historical sights and university buildings are in the western part, with a #medieval street layout, river views and parks and dominated by the cathedral.
