Construction of the Orangerie in Kassel's Karlsaue (Aue Park) started in 1702.
Completed in 1710, it used to be the summer residency of landgrave Karl von Hessen-Kassel.
During World War II, it was almost completely destroyed. After reconstruction, the museum for astronomy and technical history opened in 1992. It also includes a Planetarium and coffee-house.
Adjacent to the Orangerie is the large Aue Park (please refer to the next tip)
Spangenberg, the city of my ancestors.....
I live in The Netherlands, my parents are from Indonesia, but my grandparents are named Spangenberg....Weird, isn´t it ?
They owned the castle, but their family left this place to go to Asia. I have visited this tiny town some years ago, and I hope to see it again.
The sign above is our family-sign.
Since I was a small kid, I don´t have any pix from this place. The pix you see are taken from the official website.
