The snow was threatening in the air
traffic warnings issued
so we were very aware time.
We decided to pick a castle
from the dozens along the river
we found a few open for winter.
S1 did the honors, picking out a gem
it was astonishing
We have seen plenty of ‘late’ castles
Siege castles, massive building efforts designed to protect armies
but this was new for us
a family castle
half built against the elements
half built against raiders
not an army in sight.
It was eye opening
a romantic castle along the Rhine.
