I have a feeling that we will be seeing our fair share of castles and palaces over the next couple of weeks, but we cannot leave out our local Schloss Benrath. We zipped down to the suburb of Benrath in our newly rented car only to be greeted with an impressive downpour as we stepped out of it.
The rain cloud disappeared as fast as it came and we managed to find a bit of blue sky as a complimenting backdrop to the pink Schloss.
The flowers were going crazy in the gardens, among others bright purple dahlias.
Walking around the gardens a bit to build up an appetite.
Posing in the front.

We discovered swiss chard in all different colors planted among the other flowers. It looked really appetizing.
Then off for some more ice cream.
