This weekend we went to visit another local castle, Burg Nanstein. It started lightly snowing as we began the long walk up to the fortress. Although it was chilly, it was nice because we were the only people on the trail.
Burg Nanstein was built in 1162 and was defeated during the Knight’s Revolt in 1523. It is quite an impressive fortress and is built on the highest hill in the valley, it’s hard to imagine attacking it and succeeding. There are several underground tunnels and winding staircases and beautiful views of the villages below.
After our castle excursion, we went to our new house to finalize things and the boys had a snowball fight in the backyard.
