This is a lovely castle called Schloss Arolsen, which keeps a strict policy on pictures and video, but you can make some. I enjoy the various coats of arms and secret symbols and it is clear these walls are speaking to us. Notice the secret fish symbols of Jesus Christ? It is all over. See this video for more info on that and the origins of the Christian fish symbol itself:

The family Waldeck uses the 8-pointed star symbol not only in their family crest, but also in many other elements throughout the property. The Templar cross is often super imposed over or around it, which is quite interesting. The Waldeck gained great power through the Catholic Church but later turned more Protestant as a side note.

Castle Arolsen was home to future temporary koningin Emma or Queen Emma of The Netherlands. She was German and married the Dutch King Willem III and when passed on she became Queen of nederland for a time for various reasons and was very much loved.

This castle is in Sourland which is one of the most beautiful areas of Germany, only perhaps out done by the German Alps, which with it's massive peaks is hard not to be awe-struck with. The culture is rich here and the food delicious and reasonably priced compared with the rest of Germany or Holland.

Bad Arolsen en Oranje
Bad Arolsen speelt een belangrijke rol in de geschiedenis van het Huis van Oranje en mag dus geenszins ontbreken in de Oranjeroute. In 1858 werd in Schloss Arolsen namelijk een prinsesje geboren, prinses Emma zu Waldeck-Pyrmont. Zonder dit prinsesje zou het Oranjehuis al lang uitgestorven zijn. In 1879 trouwde de toen 20-jarige Emma met de 62-jarige koning Willem III. Op 31 augustus 1880 werd hun enige kind geboren: Wilhelmina. Emma zorgde ervoor dat de grondwet werd gewijzigd, zodat Wilhelmina in 1898 koningin der Nederlanden kon worden. Emma vergat haar geboorteplaats niet en bracht ook later nog regelmatig een bezoek aan Schloss Arolsen.
