The superb castles of Lower Saxony bring childhood dreams back to life: hair pinned up, abundant curls of a white wig falling around the neck, a sumptuous lace dress sweeping across the floor during the dances at the sparkling ball... The splendid architecture makes it easy for visitors to immerse themselves in the historical atmosphere. The desire of the absolutist rulers for wealth is reflected in the rich decoration of the buildings. Even today, an exclusive ambience dominates the noble mansions with their sophisticated gardens and parks.
Drawing on French and Italian influences, the architects of the day created castles that are now admired as important cultural monuments.
