Schloss Horst

Schloss Horst with some former moated castle buildings erected in 1552 - 1578 plus outbuildings from the 19th century:
1. Three-storey entrance wing as the rest of the palace beneath a high, slated hipped roof. The street facade has lavishly ornamented window frames and a four-storey oriel on Bocksfüßler corbels with caryatids, cartouches and louvers. The courtyard facade is broken down by wide masonry columns, domed window arcades and figurine niches. Inside: huge vaults, differently ornamented portals and expensively decorated fireplace whose top shows a perspective presentation of the interior. In addition, a collection of fragments of the former buildings in a room on the ground floor.
2. Brick outbuildings on an L-shaped ground plan broken down by bands and arched friezes.
