The Mansion

Das ist das "Ehemalige Schlösschen" in Hofen. Das Gebäude wurde 1722 erbaut und wurde als Militärwaisenhaus, Schule und Rathaus genutzt. Heute befindet sich dieses imposante Gebäude in Privatbesitz.
This is the former mansion in Hofen. If I want to translate correctly I have to write "small palace". It was built in 1722 and used as military orphanage, school and town hall. Today this impressive building is privately owned.

I like this building - it is "imposant". Interesting that this small building was large enough those days. Now it is "just" a home.

Quite an impressive house to live in! I guess it has at least 5 bedrooms and a big dining room!
