I know they aren't the Hohenzollerns but, I would really like to see the palaces of the lesser royals. I always thought that the Bavarian palaces outshined those of the Imperial courts of Austria and Prussia.

Does anyone have a picture of the palace just outside of Danzig that belonged to a Catholic Prussian princess who would have been the right age to be an aunt to Wilhelm II? The house was destroyed in World War II. The palace park is now a public park. My grandmother's cousin had a picture post card from the 1920s of the palace, called OLIVA, which was somehow lost when she died. If anyone can help us with this, it will be someone on this website!!!!

In regards to Schloss meaning both lock and castle...

Schloss means castle.  "schlossen" is the verb "to lock".  If he were to lock a door it would be "Er schloss die Tur".

Sincere regards,

After entering the front door of the castle, you turn to your left and this is the view of the room you will see.

And,  this is my first attempt of adding a photo to this forum.

NAATOMA's question about William's aunt's palace outside of Danzig needs attention, please. It must be the sister of Fritz; her home was lovely. It was destroyed just for the sake of destruction, but I have no pics, so please help, anyone.

I also think it was officially located in the Polish part of that area between wars. Who did she leave the home to in her will? Thanks!

I thought Fritiz's sister (Louise?) married the Grand Duke of Baden?

It is my hope and dream to visit and stay here for a week-let alone live here for 20 years.  However,if anyone deserved it, it was Princess Vicky ;) ;) ;) ;).

I stayed at the Schloss (and got a tour of private rooms) as the guest of Prince Moritz.   Awesome.  This was in 1984 or so

However, the verb is "schließen".

"To lock a door" would rather be translated as "eine Tür abschließen", or "zuschließen", or "verschließen".

"Er schloss die Tür" means "he closed the door".
