Pretty gem away from Sanssouci. Poorly maintained outdoor facilities. Difficult to find an open access. Can't you visit the inside?

I happened to be there again, so orientation and stuff. ? I'm not necessarily a fan of old castles, but I have to say I found it very nice there and then had to take a stroll through this beautiful garden. Lovingly prepared and maintained. At sunset it looks even more beautiful. The garden is open until dusk and if you're around just pop in. It is a beautiful place to stay for a while. ?

Small castle a bit further away from the large collection of palaces and parks in Potsdam. Is not open to visitors, only the small park is accessible. Unfortunately it's not really worth going there. A pity. I think it's in pretty bad shape from the outside. Compared to the other locks. If you are near Sanssouci, you can walk over there. But it's not worth going to Bornstedt just for that.

There are 4 wonderful putti in the palace gardens of Lindstedt Palace in Potsdam. Each of the boys symbolizes a different season. ???? The palace is not far from the Belvedere on the Klausberg and the Sanssouci Park in an area where it is much less busy. ? The gloomy ponds, a moor and protected wetland in the middle of the beautiful forest area Katharinenholz are also very close by. ???? In stormy and rainy weather, the environment has a very special melodramatic charm that impressed me well. ?️?️?️ By the way, Lindstedt Palace was built under Friedrich Wilhelm IV in the middle of the 19th century in the style of romantic classicism and has - like so many buildings in Potsdam - an Italianizing design language. ?? Incidentally, the building also served as a filming location for an underground secret laboratory in the film "Resident Evil" and once belonged to the ancestors of Vicco von Bülow, good old Loriot. ❤️

Very nice property with the round tower, the representative entrance to the portal and the columned aisle. The metal water reservoir above the columned aisle appears to be new and fits well with the building. I imagined what the corridor would have looked like if it had been illuminated

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
