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.

Koln Sights

The Kolner Dom is probably the most well-known landmark of the city, and one that every tourist has got to see when visiting Koln. This amazing Gothic structure is over seven centuries old, and it is the second tallest church in the world. While you can enter the cathedral for free, there is a fee if you want to climb up to one of the towers. The Kolner Synagoge is another sight to see, especially for those who have a taste for unusual architecture. Koln has several neighbourhoods where you can find historic buildings. The local term for these quarters is ‘veedels’, and there are several of them. Agnesviertel is the city’s... Read more »
