The 900 year old Riegersburg castle

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

After the Zotter factory visit in Riegersburg, we stopped at the Riegersburg castle. Eva ate grapes from the trees as we toured the castle grounds and watched the sunset. We took a cable car to the top and then walked down (which took over half an hour and, since we had come straight from work, I was wearing heels).































Then Manfred invited us to his house for dinner and ice cream. He lives with his wife and their 15 year old daughter in a house that looks like it could be an Ambassador's residence. We were amazed!

Even though this was supposed to be Manfred's birthday trip, I think the day was more of a treat for us. I am so spoiled at my job, working with the best staff.
