Rheinsberg (Palace) near Berlin

Discussion in 'Wanderlust and Travel' started by DanielD, Sep 27, 2008.

  1. Hello,
    I made a trip to Rheinsberg (a small village) near Berlin to take some pictures of the old Palace. The weather wasn't as good as promised when I arrived at the train station but gave interesting light. At the end of the day my patience was rewarded with a beautiful "golden hour".

    This is the (really small) station where I arrived. All except that single track that is still used is a museum now. To my surprise I found an old Berlin subway waggon.

    On my walk to the Palace:

    Here it is. Built ~1736-1744 (completed)

    It was built directly next to a sea, and from the other side it look like this:

    As you can see, the weather got better and better:

    At last but not least, I had fun with some ducks and swans:

    If you like you see the whole series here. Hope you enjoyed the very short trip to Prussian History. :smile:

    I love the photos, the Grande Finale is great and my favorite.
     
  3. Thanks for sharing. Love the grand finale image, as well as the ICE near the old U-bahn car.
     
  4. Thanks Scott and Mike. That's no ICE, however. While the ICE is Germany's fastest train, the one you can see there (which I came with) is probably one of our smallest :smile::

    A little Diesel powered train (the whole engine and electric transmission is in the middle section) which is used on feeder lines.

    Beautiful town. Looks like you had a nice adventure. Thanks for sharing. All the images are great but Grande Finale is my favorite of the group.
     
  6. Beautiful and scenic photos Daniel.
     

  7. Oh, very cool. Just looked like the same shape from the front in the small image and I didn't pay attention. Much different look than the D-trains which we rode when I last lived in Germany in 1997. Thanks for the follow-on photo.
     
  8. Very nice, Daniel. Really whets my appetite for a return to Northern Europe.
