Würzburg (Wbg), Festung (Part 1)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010


The "burg" in Wurzburg's name indicates that there is a castle/fortress (Festung) within the city borders. Naturally, we had to see it so despite the extreme temperatures, we walked to the very top. The view was incredible and the constant movement helped keep our body temperatures above freezing. I do regret wearing my favorite pair of jeans (complete with a few holes), however, since bare skin and subzero temperatures do not mix well. The pictures are pretty, though, right?













such a Rapunzel tower, don't you think?
