If It Ain't Baroque...Oh Wait, It Is

Notes: This is Schloss Arolsen, a baroque-style castle in Bad Arolsen, Germany.  It was built between 1713 and 1728 for the former ruling family of Waldeck and Pyrmont.  The castle is now a museum, but is also still inhabited by the Waldeck and Pyrmont family.  Wittekind Adolf Heinrich Georg-Wilhelm has been the Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont since his father's death in 1967.  His godfathers were Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler, which I'm sure is not a fact that he likes to advertise (it's on his Wikipedia page though).
