castle, turret, window.

I spy a turret

Burg Lichtenberg is the biggest (or at least longest) castle ruin in Germany. It was built around the year 1200 and was never conquered or destroyed in war. However, a fire in 1799 left it in ruins. It currently houses a youth hostel, a museum about the wandering musician tradition of the the region, an ultra-modern geological museum and is home to the Palatia Jazz Festival.

    joo: I think it would be a great place for a jazz festival, too. But we have missed our chance this year. The last concert this summer was on Saturday.
