On a steep, conical hill, the highest point of Oberschwaben (772 m above sea-level) the Waldburg rises. It was the ancestral castle of the lineage of the imperial duke of the same name. From 1221 through 1240 the imperial regalia were kept here.

Waldburg is a really small town really close to Ravensburg where we visited an ancestral castle.

It is a really well maintained castle with a lot of rooms and expositions, like shields, trophies, paintings, and a lot of old furniture. It is funny to find yourself back in time and imagine the lords living there.

A really great destination, not so far away.

This is only one of the castels in that region, maybe next time we can visit more of them.

Berlin History

Berlin, GermanyDuring World War I, poverty struck 150,000 of the residents of Berlin.  After the war, Germany was made a Republic but there was still much political and economic unrest.  This did not stop the city from having a booming nightlife and from being a European cultural center during the 1920’s.   On January 30, 1933, after much political maneuvering, Adolf Hitler was made the Chancellor of Germany and Germany’s constitution was set aside.  Berlin was made the capital of the Third Reich.  The persecution of the Jews immediately began but took a short break for the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics so that foreign leaders would not see the...
