Coat of arms harburg

Our friends recommended that we should visit Harburg with its might castle. They told us that is one of the largest and best maintained castles in southern Germany.
We had stayed over night in Donauwörth, the weather was beautiful and so we followed their advise.
We learned that the so called "Burgfest" (an event on the castle) was not celebrated in this year. It takes place every two years.
Use the link below to watch a video which shows fighting knights.
Have you ever tried a medieval meal? Ask! As far a s I remember it is offered on the castle too. We enjoyed a so called "Lutherschmaus" in Eisenach, Thuringia, Visit our respective travel guide.

Harburg and the castle with the same name - many thanks to "Berthold Werner" and Wikipedia

This castle can be traced back to the year 1150. I always loved castles. I grew up in Nuremberg with the famous "Kaiserburg". Together with a friend we built castles according to our own imagination. As a young engineer I lived for while in Bad Wimpfen and enjoyed the Kaiserpfalz". Elizabeth became also addicted and could not see enough castles too. Especially those built in the 19th century by the "mad" King Ludwig II.

The castle - many thanks to "El-mejor" and Wikipedia

In the castle - many thanks to "Tschai-pi" and Wikipedia

A gate - many thanks to "Tschai-pi" and Wikipedia
The Faulturm - many thanks to "Tschai-pi" and Wikipedia

The castle was never taken by any enemy forces. Today it contains an art collection. Do some sightseeing, have a good meal.
Get a fishing license for the Wörnitz or try some canoeing. Harburg also has a nice spa with sauna. Just ask and get some information.

Many thanks also for some of the pictures to the Tourist Board of Bavaria and involved communities
