In the scenic landscape surrounding Detmold, residence of the Lippe family, lies Schloss Schieder. It were Count Casimir and his son Count Rudolph of Lippe-Brake, a junior line of the family, who built the castle starting in 1703. His family had come into the possession of the estate about 150 years earlier following the reformation. A small cottage used during hunting trips had been located there previously. They commissioned Tyrolean architect Joseph Falck, who had previously worked on Schloss Corvey. Falck drew up plans for a baroque gem following the example of Dutch classicism. Construction works were finished by 1708.
Good to know:
Schloss Schieder is occasionally open to the public though its interior is rather modern. There also is a café located in the castle and its surrouding park makes for a new stroll.
