castle of Thomas Gottschalk, talkmaster

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 - flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/talkmaster-castle/ more about Gottschalk, who also owns a villa in the neighborhood of Barbra Streisand in the USA: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Gottschalk

    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?

    ich denke mal, daß sie außen denkmalgeschützt ist -- innen wird es sicherlich grauslich neureich geschmacklos sein. so wie er nun mal ist...

    What a strange this world is....
    Talkmaster lives like a real king...

    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.

    Great photography, nonetheless! :)

    hi maistora,
    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 ...
