Artist's Description

Like many medieval buildings, Castle Veldenstein’s exact construction date is not known. Historical documents mention the main house first in 1269.

Hermann Goering inherited the castle in 1937. During this time Germany was gearing up for WW II and because he held a very high position within the Nazi party, he constructed a bomb-proof shelter under the castle containing its own electricity, oxygen, and water supply.

Rumor has it that Reich Marshal Hermann Goering hid a great deal of Nazi treasure taken during conquests over eastern Europe. When the war was over, the American army arrived at the castle with pneumatic drills and pickaxes. Although they found five chests none of them contained the treasure rumoured to be in the castle. Many treasure seekers visited the castle, but found nothing.

After the war’s end, the castle was turned over to the Free State of Bavaria and used as a home for refugees for many years.

Today the State of Bavaria owns the castle which houses an hotel and restaurant operated by Mr. Oliver Betzelt and his family.

Not normally my “thing”, this capture has been treated with Photomatix HDR software to give it that dramatic touch!
