    I've absolutely got confused with these Schloss Münchhausen:
    - Schloss Münchhausen in Schwöbber,
    - Schloss in Bevern,
    - Sclioss in Bodenwerder.
    I've already mixed English and German. :-)))
    Where is real, unreal the baron?

      Yes, the great number of Münchhausens can make one confuse :-D
      Münchhausen is an old noble German dynasty.
      Hilmar von Münchhausen *1512 †1573 built Schloss Münchhausen in Schwöbber.
      He had 2 sons Hilmar and Statius.
      Hilmar von Münchhausen *1558 †1617 built Schloss Wendlinghausen.
      Statius von Münchhausen *1555 †1633 built Schloss Bevern.
      The wellknown Baron Hieronymus Carl Friedrich von Münchhausen *1720 †1797 was a cousin of Hilmar and Statius. He inherited the manor Bodenwerder.
      Dear Olga, I hope, that now you are confused on a higher level <*:o)

    Bevern
    Maibaum?
    Why? I understand a little. Probably, your explanations are required. Oh, I torment you questions!

      Dear Olga, I am glad about your interest!
      A (Maibaum) maypole is a tall wooden pole erected as a part of various European folk festivals, particularly on May Day. Although in some countries it is instead erected at Midsummer. In some cases, like here in Bevern, the maypole is a permanent feature that is only utilised during the festival. Although in other cases it is erected specifically for the purpose before being taken down again.
      Maypole dancing is a form of traditional folk dance from western Europe, especially England, Sweden, Galicia, Portugal and Germany :-))

    This sculpture modern? A beautiful horse! Even muscles are accurately looked through!

      Castle Bevern is used as a place of exhibition. The colored horses should point to an exhibit of Russian archaeological findings. The exhibit has the name „silver horse“. Archaeological treasures are shown like weapons, jewellery and things of the everyday life from the area Caucasus and Black Sea.
