Schaumburg

• Die Schaumburg ist eine Höhenburg nahe der Stadt Rinteln im Landkreis Schaumburg/Niedersachsen. Die Burg steht in einem Waldgebiet auf dem 225 Meter hohen kegelförmigen Nesselberg im Wesergebirge des Weserberglandes. Die Burg wurde vermutlich im 11. Jahrhundert erbaut. Ihre erste urkundliche Erwähnung stammt aus dem Jahr 1119. Seitdem war die Burg der Stammsitz der Grafen von Schaumburg,
Von der mittelalterlichen Anlage stehen noch drei der ursprünglich vier Türme, darunter der mächtige Georgsturm, der heute als Aussichtsturm bestiegen werden kann.
Die Burg war auch oft Ziel der Jahresabschluss-Brevets im Weserbergland.

• The Schaumburg is a hilltop castle near the town of Rinteln in the district of Schaumburg/Lower Saxony. The castle stands in a wooded area on the 225 meter high cone-shaped Nesselberg in the Weser Mountains of the Weser Uplands. The castle was probably built in the 11th century. It was first mentioned in a document in 1119. Since then, the castle has been the ancestral seat of the Counts of Schaumburg,
Three of the original four towers of the medieval complex are still standing, including the mighty Georgsturm, which can be climbed today as a lookout tower.
The castle was also often the destination of the year-end brevets in the Weser Uplands.

      Yes, dear Elena, this is a lime-tree! :-)
      My camera is simple and not very light-strong (lens let light poorly through). During dark days with cloudy sky the exposure time becomes much long and it becomes difficult to keep still the camera! So I am astonished as you recognize the kind of tree on my fuzzy, blurred photo! :-))

          :-D
          Oh yes, you are right, dear Elena.
          The mighty trunk of the tree is even visible with my simple camera :o)

              I have seen the tree in the reality and have recognized it, therefore, as a lime-tree.
              With the only help of the leaves on the photo I could not recognize the type of tree. On the photo these could be, e.g., also the leaves of the black alder (Ольха чёрная).
              You well know the botany! :-)))

                No :))) ... To me has advantaged :) ... I have guessed :))
                Botany I know badly... Calculation of stamens (at school) was for me very boring :)))

                  I see, you know much more than me. I never calculated stamens!!

                    :))) ...
                    When you defined the class-subclass of flowers - you too, most likely, considered the amount of stamens, petals and other characteristics of flowers ...

                    I remember from school botany that we studied it all and that it was boring :))) ... And more next to nothing :)))
