Don't worry, we did find our way up there with lots of twisted turns. LOL. The walkway would have been nice, too, with a stop at the beergarden on the way back down. Perhabs next time. Leland used to run from post on the other side of the town down the hill to downtown and up to castle and all the way back for PT almost every morning - 5 km. He still remembers that.
The castle is called 'Festung Marienberg' and the girls love it, last time already the couldn't quit talking after our visit there and it is beautiful up there. You can see the Kaeppele and also find a trail through hills over or from downtown up. I counted the steps on the stairs when I was a kid there are more as 300.
I am always taking these pictures from the view over the city, but I can resists, neither can Isabell. There is a big wall there, you are not supposed to climb on because of you fall you do land deep down on the vines and smash the grapes and yourself of course, but it is a beautiful spot to soak in the sun and the sight.
For the kids and their snack I had to find a safer spot to sit down because they just can't be trusted but the sight was just as good and you can sit safely in the gras over here pretty much - NO FIRE ANTS, no dangerous spiders, no ...... I could keep going.
Here are some of Bella's and Chiara's pictures. They are really crazy about taking pictures, too, and Soren and let chiara take pictures of him. Stinker!
