|An weird view from the Greiffenegg-Schlössle on to Freiburg in 1830. |
The Münster church is in a wrong position.
Recently an exhibition opened in Freiburg's Augustinermuseum titled Greiffenegg and Ramberg dedicated to the friendship between Hermann Gottlob and Johann Heinrich. The two men met in 1819 when Greiffenegg junior was Austrian ambassador to the Kingdom of Hanover.
