Glücksburg

Glücksburg

Last week my host parents took me to Schloß Glücksburg which is a famous "water castle" in the region. I believe it is one of two in all of Germany. It was home to many royals and important people. I did not get many pictures of the inside because it was not allowed, but the castle had 4 floors (I think), a private chapel, and a dungeon complete with torture chamber!! My host mom and I got a "private tour" and learned some very interesting facts about the castle. One of which was that the servants were forced to learn to play instruments like the piano and violin so that they could provide entertainment when the family had parties, etc.
