Schloss Bückeburg

    Mausoleum Schloss Bückeburg
    I think it would be so cool to visit an old mausoleum like the one here. You could learn so much about how they prepared for the funerals and whatnot. I think it would be fun to learn more about them. I wonder if they still make them.

      No, dear Olga, I could not ride up the stairs by the couch. :o))

        Convincing argument!

          Yes, dear Olga, of course! ...but I will practice to ride up stairs. ;-))
          At the mausoleum there were some cyclists who could do it! I've just uploaded a photo.
          Please look:

            Such jumping boys I meet frequently. I hope, you won't jump. :-) You've forgotten, sometimes people go up the stairs by feet . ;-))

              Really? Is it possible to move without bicycle?
              ;o)))

                :-D
                100%. You can trust me.

                  Yes, yes, now reminds me! Thank you, dear Olga! As a young man I also could do this.
                  But you know, now I am 58...
                  ...motion without wheels is utterly exhausting ...and climbing up the stairs by feet becomes nearly impossible ;o(
                  Luckily in Germany there are often special barrier free ways for old people! ;o)))

                    Ah! Oh! I regret. I not knew nothing about your age, I was tactless. But you have good memory for your years.

                      Thanks, you are very nice to me! :-D
                      ...but you give me again a good idea for my next cycling trip! As the next I will ride to the renaissance castle Hasperde! Castle Hasperde is used now as a residential home for the elderly.
                      What do you think: should I look there already for an apartment? :o))

                        You will go there later, through 42 years, dear Manfred!
                        I will to see your marathons still. :-)

    Ancient сastle are the richest cultural heritage. I admire also because architecture monuments have ruthlessly destroy in Russia.

      Yes, dear Olga, it is frightening that the destruction of cultural monuments can be seen as a fulfilment of a revolutionary task.
