My grandfather owned an estate in Saxony – Anhalt, in a small village called Ihlewitz. It is beautifully situated between Gerbstedt and Friedeburg in the Saale-valley. Rigth across the river Saale you can find Bernburg. A small ferry crosses the Saale there. In Friedeburg is a castle with a tower in which the poet Klopstock sealed. It is covered in Virginia, red ivy and quite romantic. From there you have a wide view of the Saale valley.
