Schloss Biebrich (Biebrich Palace)

Visiting Frankfurt or Mainz or Wiesbaden? Then you should not miss this wonderful gem – Schloss Biebrich (or Biebrich Palace in English).

What and where is Schloss Biebrich?

From wikipedia:

Built in 1702 by Prince Georg August Samuel of Nassau-Idstein, it served as the ducal residence for the independent Duchy of Nassaufrom 1816 until 1866.

[…]

Charlotte, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, sold the palace to the State of Prussia in 1935. Heavily damaged during World War II, it was renovated and partly reconstructed between 1980 and 1982 by the State of Hesse. It is now used by the state government for representation purposes and houses the state’s historic preservation agency.

You will first be amazed by its beautiful pink-ish coloured wall from miles away. But do walk closer. Pay attention to the details on the wall, and the statues on the roof. I was so lucky that it was quite sunny when I visited the palace. Blue sky, green grassland, pink palace, perfecto.

The palace is located in the “Schlosspark” (palace-park). Beside photography, it is a wonderful place if you wish to have a jog. Reading on the bench is nice too, I reckon.
