Castle: “Schloss” or “Burg”?
- Châteaux, castles, rather palaces, called 'Schloss'
If we look at the pictures, perhaps
we find, this is true: “Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte.” (A picture can tell more than 1000 words.)
Kein schöner Land in dieser Zeit
The song „Kein schöner Land in dieser Zeit“ (No more beautiful country in this time [these times]) was published by him as an „Abendlied“ (evening song or hymn) in 1840. It was one of many in a collection of Volksliedern (folk songs), but in fact Anton Wilhelm von Zuccalmaglio himself is the author of "Kein schöner Land in dieser Zeit". One of those words is confusing even to some German native speakers, as "schöner" is here a shortened form of "schöneres", more beautiful. The song continues to be found in almost every collection of traditional German songs.
