Fantastic place, did you check out the cave room - halfway up the castle? And the room with the golden swan washbowl? That guy was a certified genius.. or an authentic whacko.

My parents sent me on a tour of that stunning Schloss when I was 12. They didn't care to go. I kept trying to see all the secret passageways that HAD to be there. . and trying to guess which Wagner opera was which room.

And did it give you just that little bit of a thrill - picturing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang landing? Or goosebumps remembering the childcatcher?? Did both for me (about 20 yrs ago!) Looks just as pretty

Was there in autumn, or as your American half would say the fall.Very interesting & quite mad story about the building of this mock medieval building as well.Is this going to be shown on TV as a travel journal like the one in America.

What has 'Colditz' got to do with it? Can't you leave out the 'war' for once, hm? (Don't retweet me on that either, vg3p - & btw, it's 'Die' Katze, not 'Da'. Unless you mean, as in 'there', da.)
Sorry about this, Stephen, just had to say that. But I'm s

For some reason when I visit large old structure like this I ponder the lives lost during its erection

mrsredboots 1885 days ago

Ah yes, been there!
