... built in which look like Delft pottery.

One of the highlights of the tour is the fabulous Amber Room which is covered with around 6 tonnes of amber. Unfortunately the Nazis stole the original amber in World War II but it has been meticulously restored.

After the palace tour we spent a little time in the beautiful gardens where Catherine had an elaborate terraced summer house where she could walk alone.

After lunch, ...
