    Hi, \nOur family is restoring a piece of history by our own hands, the last pre-war owner was Heinrich Gottfried. In 1945 The palace was occupied by the Red Army, and after it by the State Farm, In later years the palace rooms were transformed into apartments, destroying the stylish features of the interior, our mission is bringing the palace back to life, any help counts.
