Luisium in Dessau - image 2
I took this picture of the "Luisium" in late autumn 2020. I photographed it on the 07/11/2020 at 15:10 o'clock in "Dessau-Waldersee" which is a part of "Dessau-Roßlau" in the German federal state "Sachsen-Anhalt" ("Saxony-Anhalt"). The city is the third largest within the federal state and has about 80.000 inhabitants. (9777)
"Luisium" is a palace and landscape garden in Dessau. It is a part of Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1774 work started on a small palace in the style of an English country house, which Leopold III, Duke of Anhalt-Dessau built for his wife Margravine Louise of Brandenburg-Schwedt, thus the name Luisium.
This building is called "Schlangenhaus" because of the form of the waterspout. Originally the building was used as a teahouse. Nowadays one can rent it as holiday home.
