Schloss vor Husum

The castle in front of Husum - so called because it was located in front of the city limits when it was built - is located in Husum in the district of North Frisia in Schleswig-Holstein. It was originally a secondary residence of the ducal house of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf and served as the occasional residence of the Danish royal family in the 18th and 19th centuries. Already during this time, the now "royal castle" took up the administration, which extended to almost the entire house after 1864 and remained here until the 20th century.

The Husum Water Tower is a former water tower in Husum, Germany. It does not stand on the highest point of the city, but near the center of the city at the northwest corner of the palace garden. In addition to its technical utility, it had an aesthetic significance from the very beginning, because tower buildings, which gave Husum a characteristic silhouette, were missing in the city.
