Coat of arms Ortenburg

It was in Ortenburg where I tried the first blue berry wine. It was so delicious and I still can taste it. Years later I tried various brands but none as good.
That is the reason why I dragged Elizabeth to Ortenburg. We visited a place which I thought was the right one - but they did not even offer blue berry wine. So I had beer with my meal and after that a glass of Bärwurz a speciality schnapps from the Bavarian Forest.
Because drinking and driving is something you should not do we walked through parts of the town to do our sightseeing. Ortenburg had a population of about 7000.

We walked so much that I could have had easily two beers and two schnapps.
We did not go into the castle but Elizabeth wanted to see the birds and the animals which were displayed in the near by "Vogelpark" and "Wildpark".

The castle was built around 1120 and two times destroyed and rebuilt. A renovation took place between 1972 and 1991. (Thanks to Wikipedia) Please visit it as well as the museum which found a place in it. You may not have such castles in your country. The castle was also used every two years for the so called "Ortenburger Ritterspiele". (a knights' tournament).

Please contact Ortenburg about actual details and schedule. I don't know wether the games will proceed. But I hope so.
At the end of this page I installed a link to a video about this event.
