My Trip to Stadthagen

On Tuesday I was in Stadthagen and there I bought some cards for my collection.

Stadthagen was once the capital of the Principality of Schaumburg and is today the capital of a district of the same name in the German State of Lower Saxony. It is located on the German Timber-Frame Road and it is also known for its Weser Renaissance buildings.

The most famous landmark in Stadthagen is the Mausoleum of Prince Ernst. The Mausoleum of Prince Ernst was built between 1620 and 1627 next to the Saint Martini Church and was used as burial site of the House of Schaumburg and the House of Schaumburg-Lippe until 1915. It is a domed heptagon in Italian renaissance style. Inside is a resurrection monument by Adrian de Vries, which is the only work of the artist which is still at its original place. It is considered to be a site of European rank.
