Postcard from Germany: Meissan Castle – Château de Meissen

photo_178_meissen_castleWhen I saw Albrechtsburg Castle in Meissen, I was immediately reminded of the Renaissance staircase in Blois Castle, though this one is much more rudimentary. Note the double sundial on the left as well.
Dès que j’ai vu le château d’Albrechtsburg à Meissen j’ai pensé à l’escalier Renaissance au château de Blois, bien que celui-ci est beaucoup plus rudimentaire. Notez bien le cadran solaire double à gauche.

Do you all mean “full of light”? The inside was designed with many windows for that reason but unfortunately it turned out to be impossible to heat despite all the ceramic stoves.
