Photographer Stefan Dietze says: "I heard some rumours about the castle, all focusing on the fact that it was used as a retirement home before it was abandoned."

"I was especially keen on seeing the countless wheelchairs which were still standing around unused and abandoned, and all the old medical equipment was still intact and inside."

"I do believe that growing old in this castle must have been very nice. There are many big rooms and a large hall with very nice woodwork on the walls."

After the Second World War the owners were ousted by the German Democratic Republic government, which decided to use the old manor house as a retirement home instead.

"I want people to look at them and to start wondering what once might have happened in the particular setting, who could have lived and died in the old castle over the centuries."
