Pink is often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity, and romance, according to surveys in Europe and the United States. During the Rococo period (1720-1777) in the 18th century, pastel colors, including pink, became fashionable at the courts of Europe.

Schloss Assumstadt History
Assumstadt Palace, an impressive rococo structure, was commissioned by Empress Maria Theresia between 1769 and 1771. Designed by the school of Fischer von Erlach and Prague architect Paul Wiedhopf, the palace features typical architectural elements of the time and is reminiscent of the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. Many of the palace’s doors, stoves, windows, and floors are copies of those found in Vienna, crafted in Prague.
The palace is situated in a large park, which used to be the location of the Assumstadt church until its demolition in 1799. Empress Maria Theresia gifted the castle to her loyal general sergeant-at-arms Karl Reinhard von Ellrichshausen, whose family had held the local lordship in Assumstadt since 1667. The castle was sold to Hubert Graf zu Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee by Ellrichshausen’s descendants in 1937.
Today, Assumstadt Castle is under the management of the third generation of the Waldburg family, Hubertus Graf von Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee.
