In a small town of Bückeburg, in a beautiful park lies the majestic palace, the residence of Schaumburg-Lippe Princes . It was a small principality with an area of 340 square kilometers on the territory of Lower Saxony. The last of the princes abdicated in 1918.

Princely descendants now live in the palace, but some parts of the complex are open to visitors. The viewable area is gorgeous, see the pictures. The building has a 700-year history and repeatedly was under construction. For example, central facade and interior were renovated in 1732 in the early baroque style, and new outbuildings of the palace are built in neo-baroque and neo-rococo styles. This is especially noticeable in the courtyard, where different styles are present.

The greatest impression is the chapel, the hall with gold masterpiece carvings and the ceremonial (banqueting) hall where members of the princely family host visitors nowadays. You should see it for yourself.
