Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas.
This lovely view evokes the idea of baroque still life bouquets but maybe that´s just me, reading morales into it. So that´s Bad Ragaz then, not Wiesbaden (I looked both castles up but Wiesbaden lacks the vanitas quality though I do see, they give Dinners in the Dark and host sensuous "Barefoot Thinking" http://www.schlossfreudenberg.de/home.html, something for early risers; when grass is still fresh). The painter´s name sounds very summery (such as certain minds) making some of us think of Radler (beer mixed with lemonade) and its can illustration depicting turn-of-the-century women in white dresses on bicycles.
