Branitz Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany – a planned landscape park near Cottbus.   It was the creation of Prince Hermann Ludwig Heinrich von Pückler Muskau, who began to develop the park in 1845.   The Cavalierhaus was built on part of the old foundations of stables and servants’ quarters of the old farmyard in the period from 1857-58 in an English neo-Tudor style.   Since its restoration in 1986, it has been a guesthouse and restaurant.

Sure, just what you want to see when you arrive for a cozy dinner:  a woman holding a severed head.   Hoping he was not the last guy to criticize her cooking.
