Schloss Burg


Last weekend, we had friends visiting from England.  Usually, visitors come to see us in either in the summer or during the Christmas markets.  And we have our regular visitor-itineraries all planned out for these times of year.  But, it was quite a challenge to think of somewhere to go on a very cold and wintery Saturday in January.....

In the end, we decided on Schloss Burg.  I LOVED being there in the snow (despite the chilling winds as we walked around the outside of the castle).  It was so picturesque, and we only saw a handful of other people there all day long!  

We found a cafe and had some lunch (potato soup, followed by hot chocolate and a waffle), had a (quick) walk around outside, and then spent a couple of hours exploring the maze of rooms and staircases inside the castle.

Luckily, I remembered to take my camera along.....









Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?!?  We’ve visited Schloss Burg lots and lots of times, and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.  When the weather’s fine, there’s a chairlift going up to the castle – which is a fun adventure!  But I’ve decided that I like it best in the snow!!! 

If you’ve been getting snow in your part of the world, I hope you’re enjoying it and managing to stay safe and warm!

Hugs to you,

Carly

  7. Hello Carly, Thank you for visiting my place (via Kate at Signed with an Owl!) It's always nice to see new people popping in and saying hello! Now I can come in to you and see your castle shots with a powdering of snow! I like the last two shots of the clock and the roof-tops. Sandra
