Gasthaus Eulenkrug is beautifully located at the Weser River and surrounded by fields and woods just a little further down the back road from the Fuerstenberg Castle. It's an inviting place for having bikers and hikers a rest. Food is nice and modest, and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. We took a vegetable soup, Hawain Toast, coffee and tea. All was good except for the rainy weather.
Mom and me been at the castle's restaurant Lottine as we previously took a walk right around the castle. We decided to have lunch right at that castle's restaurant. At Restaurant Lottine food and service were ok. We've had sausages, smoked pork, kale, potatoes. Then rice, Asian vegetables, and chicken. Almost too big of portions. Mineralwater and tea. Ambience of lovely-bright restaurant Lottine, fits quite good into chateau's atmosphere.
If one likes to take a trip on some country roads, if one likes to make a break rather in the woods far from any see and to be seen, and if one also likes cooked trout then this is the perfect place. Restaurant Weserberg Terrassen does some wonderful cooking in fact, and also offers wonderful service. We did have cooked trouts, buttered potatoes, fresh salad with yoghurt, great tasting chicken soup. Mom and me were served by a kindest of a lady that served in such a friendly and welcoming manner, which is still seldom in this part of Germany.
Fuerstenberg's porcelain manufactory was founded (1747) in the district's castle high above the Weser river. Founder was Duke Carl I of Brunswick. Porcelain manufactory went on to become one of Europe’s most famous porcelain manufactories. The castle complex, which is protected as a historical monument, includes the manufactory’s own porcelain museum.
Fuerstenberg's porcelain manufactory's web page provids with detailed informations. Also translation in English. Neat. Pls read below. The photos I took show the town's porcelain shop where at customers can buy Fuerstenberg-porcelain.

While we were strolling around and through the little, most loveliest town of Fuerstenberg, we stopped at a small but very nice shoes' shop. Think, the store called Schuhaus Meyer with quite a good selection of Addidas-shoes as well. Though during lunch time that shop was closed, they left one tiny place open.
The broken sandal
Dreamed the thong of my sandal broke.
Nothing to hold it to my foot.
How shall I walk? Barefoot?
The sharp stones, the dirt. I would
hobble. And - Where was I going?
Where was I going I can't
go to now, unless hurting?
Where am I standing, if I'm
to stand still now?
The Weser river (which leads through one of the loveliest regions in Germany) is a river in north-western Germany..and flows through Lower Saxony, then reaching the historic port city of Bremen before emptying into the North Sea 50 km further north at Bremerhaven, which is also a seaport. The Weser river has an overall length of 452 km..
A large reservoir on the Eder river, is used to regulate water levels on the Weser river so as to ensure adequate depth for shipping throughout the year. The dam, built in 1914, was bombed and destroyed by British aircraft in May 1943..but was rebuilt within four months. Today the Edersee reservoir is a major summer resort area and provides substantial hydroelectricity.
Towns along the Weser river are for example Beverungen, Hoexter, Hameln, Boffzen,
Hessisch Oldendorf, Rinteln, Nienburg, Achim, Bremen, Brake, Nordenham, Bremerhaven.
