Storyline

The series is based on an aristocratic German family (The Guldenburgs). It deals with the various relationships and problems the family goes through. The Guldenburgs live outside Hamburg at Castle Guldenburg, which is set on a large farm and is also the location of the family brewery (the chief source of their fortune). A Hamburg family - the Balbecks are the rival Beer-makers and seek to buy-out the Guldenburgs. Things are complicated by Thomas von Guldenburg falling in love with Kitty (Catherine) Balbeck. The Guldenburgs themselves are not a unified family. Herta, the dowager Countess, never really approved of Christine,the present Countess. Christine's husband (Herta's son) is dead, leaving her two children, Susanne (Nana) and Alexander (Sacha). There are also two children from the Count's first marriage - Thomas and Evelyn. Evelyn is married to Achim Lauritzen - who works for the Balbecks and attempts to undermine the Guldenburgs. Christine is the principal heroine as she ...

a beautiful soap series from Germany
11 November 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Die Erbe des Guldenburgs... the Guldenburg inheritance. As a dutch person I can understand German without any problems, so I had the chance to enjoy the series when it first was on Germand TV (ZDF). I loved the glamor, castles, cars, jet set and the intrigues. The story is better then a standard soap series, with good story lines. In fact the whole story is about what can happen if the head of the family suddenly dies, in the strength of his life, without having made preparations for his wife and children, nor for his bastard child and his mother... who he secretly visited weekly.

After his death (car accident) all comes together, all are confronted by human items: greed, weakness, love, anger.

Anyway: a very good series, although at the end it was getting less interesting if you ask me. I am glad I recorded all though, it is nice to see them again occasionally... but then: I am a TV series addict!
