GRIMM'S FAIRYLAND IN NORTHWESTERN GERMANY NAPOLEON III LOATHED WILHELMSHOHE CASTLE A prisoner of war, he languished within its walls in 1870-71. Many monarchs have been willing or unwilling guests at this palace, formerly a residence of the Electors of Hesse. © National Geographic Society Natural Color Photographs by Wilhelm Tobien WILHELM II USED THIS CASTLE AS A SUMMER HOME Standing in a stately park on a hillside overlooking Kassel, it was a favorite resort of the ex-Kaiser. It is a ponderous structure in the classical style, without much architectural interest, but its surroundings are delightful. The upper view is of the front, the lower of a side-wing.
