This is a beautiful building, they really did know how to build them back then! Imagine it lasting for so long. Incredible.

That is a great link!

Jean it is an interresting story about its reconstruction. Although it never was destroyed it fell into disrepair in the 16th and 17th centuries

I see that this castle was repaired in only the six years. I would have thought that the repairs would take much longer. That architect must have been fantastic!

Have you seen the aviary there?


K.Herr on November 15, 2008

Jean, I could not see the aviary this year, the casle ist closed now till next spring, but I saw it two years ago and there I saw "Hermann" the fish-eagle.:-))

Oh, please tell my you got a photo! If not, you'll have to go back in the Spring! I can't get there from here. Drat.


K.Herr on November 16, 2008

Ok ok, I will go back:-)).

Hallo Klaus und ein Stück weiter gibt es die Burg Katz oder Katzenellenbogen, wenn ich mich richtig erinnere.... stimmt's? Grüße Udo

K.Herr on November 30, 2008

Ganz recht Udo, in St. Goarshausen gibt´s die Burg Katz, genauer Burg Neukatzenelnbogen, weil sie von den Grafen von Katzenelnbogen erbaut wurde (ich vermute sie haben sie nicht selbst gebaut, sondern bauen lassen). Schöne Gegend da.

Gruß Klaus
