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 Travel guide

Berlin, GermanyBerlin is back – back as the capital of a reunified Germany and back as one of Europe’s greatest cities. After World War II, Berlin was sandwiched between East and West, with a literal and metaphoric wall deeply dividing the two halves, but a new Berlin has emerged, that of a nation with nothing to hide, which is attempting to distance itself from the ghosts of its past. Berlin is a city with two centers – one is a cluster of expensive hotels, bars, cinemas, shops around the Memorial Church and the other is the political and cultural core of the Imperial German capital. Because of the decades of division, the reunited city... Read more »
