Yes, Thomas, I've visited that area too as well as their castle.  There was something truly lovely about the garden at the castle... very foresty, misty with a plaque about Queen Victoria on one of the trees... tried to get a pic but it was too dark a day.

That whole area is nice.  They are using the Erbach-Schoenberg castle for offices or something now, aren't they??

I am researchingmy family tree my great grandfather was a botanist who migrated to Fiji in 1860 and his father my great grandfather was head gardener at the castle at the time Queen Victoria planted the tree, so really nice to see the comments. We visited the castle and grounds and they are indeed beautiful.

Are there any photos of Marie's husband Gustav?

I've never seen one.

There are some more certainly, many albums are just not digitized.
