With Prince Alexander of Schaumburg-Lippe

With Prince Alexander of Schaumburg-Lippe.

Bückeburg Palace (“Schloss Bückeburg”), where my latest under post production video “Never Wanna Hurt You” was shot, was the residence of the Princes of Schaumburg-Lippe. Today, the Princely family, having surrendered political power in 1918, still lives there. The palace, which in part is open to the public, is a major touristic point of interest and houses important works of art. The building history spans 700 years, with the most important contributions stemming from the 16th, 17th, and 19th century.

The Princely Mausoleum in the palace courtyard is open to he public as well. Built in 1915 in Neo-Roman style resembling the Pantheon in Rome, it is the world’s largest private sepulcher still in use. The cupola is adorned by an impressive gold mosaic, the second largest of its kind after the one in the Saint Sophia in Istanbul.
