Thomas Gottschalk Talkmaster Castle

Thomas Gottschalk, he became a talkmaster for several German TV channels, became famous – and rich. Then he bought this castle “Marienfels” near Bonn / Remagen, looking down to the river Rhine like a Baroque king – more about Gottschalk, who also owns a villa in the neighborhood of Barbra Streisand in the USA: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Gottschalk

Akbar Simonse from The Netherlands: Lots of guest rooms I suppose..:-)
★Frizztext: yes Akbar, but I fear, he will not invite us; on the other hand, his famous friend Gunter Sachs recently made suicide. Maybe he searches for some substitute?

Ken from Texas: Hey, how come you’re taking pictures of my house ? :-)
★Frizztext: hey Mr. bodyguard, you’ve been on the roof top there again with your rifle?

Andrey Shilov from Ukraine: What a strange this world is. Talkmaster lives like a real king…
★Frizztext: One of my favorite philosophers, Ernst Bloch, once wrote: Castles? We don’t need them. I’m not crying, if you destroy them all. We don’t need the attitude of oppressing, robbing, dominating no more.

maistora from England: Money doesn’t necessarily go hand-in-hand with good taste. This isn’t a historic building, but a later project in which all ‘defence’ elements (like the big round tower) were added purely as decoration – and are, imho, kitsch. Location and living space may be great, but outside appearance doesn’t speak highly of the owners’ cultural values.
★Frizztext: The talkmaster’s continuous attitude is to please every idiot. He smiles, is a happy-maniac, hates critical comments, makes advertising for sweets too. Once Marcel Reich-Ranicki, nearly a philosopher, at least very furious – he attacked German television with his king Thomas Gottschalk as stupid overall. Great riot followed …
