The Niederburg castle is actually a ruin but worth a visit. It‘s very affordable and very interesting to walk within the walls and around the remains of the ancient castle. It does tell its own story. Quite romantic to be honest.

We went every year during the medieval fair. It was fun dressing up and being with so many other people dressed in Period costumes.

Our visit was in winter, and our view of it very similar to the picture. Fog swirled around it constantly changing the light and the atmosphere. Just beautiful!

We went on a weekday while everyone was at work. It was wonderful to imagine what it must have been like back in the 900's. Go when it's not busy and it is a nice hour or two to spend.
