A Bolivian pan flute orchestra has been stuck in quarantine for two months outside of Berlin on the grounds of a grand 15th century palace that has housed generations of German royals, according to the BBC.
The group arrived in Germany on March 10 expecting to perform at the MaerzMusik festival, the same day the country announced its ban on large gatherings, quickly followed by a nation-wide lockdown.
A week later Bolivia closed its borders, forcing the group to be stranded at the 600-acre estate surrounded by 23 packs of wolves and haunted by the ghost of Frederick the Great.
“We all joke that Frederick’s ghost is following us and trying to trip us up,” Camed Martela told the BBC. “I don’t usually believe in such things but it does feel as if there are ghosts on the grounds.”
Tracy Prado, who just joined the orchestra in December, ran into wolves during one of her walks.
“I froze in fear but they were just play fighting and moved on,” she said.
