Löwenbräu („lion’s brew“) is a brewery in München, Southern Germany. Most of its beers are marketed as being brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot, the beer purity law of 1516. The brewery was founded around 1383. Its lion emblem originates from a 17th-century fresco in the brewing house, depicting Daniel in the lions’ den. Löwenbräu has been served at every Oktoberfest in Munich since 1810. Because only beers that are brewed in Munich are permitted to be sold at Oktoberfest, Löwenbräu is 1 of 6 breweries represented, along with Augustinerbräu, Hofbräuhaus, Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner, and Spaten.

Das Jagdschloß Granitz is a hunting lodge on Rügen island near Binz. With 200,000+ annual visitors, it’s the most popular castle in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Northeastern Germany. It lies in the middle of the forested Granitz ridge as part of the Rügen Biosphere Reserve. It was built between 1838-1846 in the style of the North Italian Renaissance castellos and has been a popular holiday destination for European nobility and prominent people such as Otto von Bismarck. It was owned by the von Putbus family until 1944, then passed into Nazi hands on the imprisonment of the owner. The family was finally dispossessed as part of the East German land reforms; the castle remains in state hands. After the end of WW2, many furnishings were lost or stolen, works of art were taken to the Berlin Art Depot, the agency for the administration of Soviet assets in Germany, and transferred in 1953 to state museums in Berlin. Attempts by the grandson of Malte zu Putbus to get the family seat returned failed in court. The building is now used as a museum. It was renovated in the 2000s at a cost of 7.9 million euros.
