  2. That's superb, playing with dolls.

    So interesting and with great details on that castle.
    I have never played with dolls:-)

    What a fascinating museum. I'd enjoy visiting that. I think you're right about the clouds reflected in my shot but a lot of the effect is caused by the wind and downpour which was churning up the water even if containers.

    Oh, I would love to pull the strings to see the marionettes move! Fun post, Indrani!

    I have always enjoyed watching marionettes. We have a puppeteer named Ronnie Burkett who performs with marionettes, though his shows are perhaps a bit raunchier than what you might see in this castle doll house!

  7. That first face is a bit daunting! I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bishop haunted the place after all those years of being locked up. 🙂

  9. Wonderful and really interesting captures .

  10. I wouldn't want either of those first two, but it would be an interesting place to visit.

    Amazing dolls – and a little scary too.

    Indrani, this is a wonderful post for Our World, tucked away in the cellar there is so much living history. Great pictures and that bishop would stop me in my tracks as well.

    Odd that on our many visits to Salzburg we never discovered this treasure. Did you have Salzburger Knockerln in the Peters Keller, the oldest restaurant in Europe?

    Very interesting dolls!

  16. That's interesting. Yes, playing with dolls is universal.

    Fascinating, Indrani! I love playing with puppets and used it at school to train the students to speak. Sitting behind a screen feels safer than to speak before an audience.

    A fascinating place to visit, I've never tried playing with puppets on strings, but have used glove puppets. The marionettes are beautifully dressed.
