looks great and interesting to take a walk there
Thank you, Marylou.
Yes, the Taunus mountains are great to take walks – and you also have some sights like old castles, etc. But also the woods and mountains are beautiful.
Haunted relic of the past- exceptional work, rabirius.
Thanks a lot, Lance.

Een blik op de wereld, na de apocalyps !
Well. Het kasteel heeft zijn apocalyps al gepasseerd. Ze heeft afgebrand.
What History if only those wall could speak.. Great image my friend
Thank you, Sue. I’m glad you like it.
I’m curious about the paint on the shutters. Seems kind of recent – last 40 years anyway – so where did the roof go? Or if this was MEANT to be open (you did say “courtyard”) then why all the funny shaped windows? This is an odd, odd shot.
Well, the fortress burned down – so the roofs are missing in most parts. However, some things were renovated, so you can also climb the tower and go in some rooms. But I took the photo in what was supposed to be the courtyard. So I guess there was never a roof. The shutters were probably repainted. But I have to admit that I kept the red colour so the paint looks probably fresher than it actually does.
Mooi. Op de achtergrond stel ik me de stofwolken voor van een middeleeuwse veldslag
Dank je wel, Henk.
Sehr Stimmungsvolles Bild!
I haven’t known this historical relic before…. interesting!
Thank you, Frauke.
Wenn you are in the Taunus Mountains, the castle in Königstein is really worth visiting. There are also other beautiful ruins of castles nearby, like Falkenstein.
Ah, thanks very much for this information, I will check it out and see what and when to visit 😎😉
Yes, do that.
I’s really worth it. And if you like old ruins of castles you will find others nearby.
