Photographer's Note

Castle Badinghagen

This is the small moated castle Badinghagen, situated southwest of the small town Meinerzhagen in a really remote valley (please see map view right hand) - about 50 km north-east of Cologne.
It was first mentioned in a deed of 1160 and in the course of the centuries it often changed hands and was rebuilt several times. The today's building basically originate from 17th century. The original castle complex has been much more bigger.

In any case it's a truly picturesque, romantic and very calm place. The whole estate is fenced in and in addition surrounded by a big hedge. So I had to take my photo with the camera over my head and two big snarling dogs behind the hedge ... but in order to show you my region I spare no pains ;-)

In workshop you can see a picture taken from the entrance gate.
