On Wednesday I was in Bückeburg and there I bought some postcards for my collection.
Bückeburg is a small town in the German State of Lower Saxony. It was once the capital of the Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe.
Bückeburg Palace was the residence of the Princes of Schaumburg-Lippe. The oldest parts of the palace were constructed in the 14th century and it was extended over the centuries. Today the palace is still inhabited, but parts are also open to visitors.
The Princely Riding School of Bückeburg is one of only a few royal riding schools in the World.
The Princely Mausoleum was built between 1911 and 1915. It is the World's largest private sepulchre still in use.
The Town Church of Bückeburg was built between 1611 and 1615. It is the main church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Schaumburg-Lippe.
The Museum Bückeburg was opened in 1905. It shows exhibits about the history of Bückeburg and the Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe. It also has a large collection of traditional costumes.
