Reinbek Castle

This beautiful castle, renovated during the early Eighties, was built in the 16th century. I had to visit an office at my birthplace, so I went there -- more than 1 hour by suburban train -- and later took a walk through the park and around the castle. It was completely empty, just one young mother pushing a pram, and a gardener cutting the hedges.
As this castle was built on a former cloister site, there is a large artificial lake near it; most cloisters had a lake or a pond nearby for the fish they ate on Fridays and during the fasting period.
Today, the castle can be rented for celebrations and congresses.
