No, I just mean the picture. That's Burg Hohenzollern. Been there. It was just a cool, sunny day when I was there. Walked all over that hill and the next one. The interior of the castle is nice...castle-y. Sort of half-way between the Residenz in Munich and Meersburg (the actual burg, not the town; 'burg' means fortress, though not to the degree that 'festung' does - 'burg' allows for a considerable amount of decoration - Wikipedia covers all that here).
The 'halfway' remark is tongue-in-cheek.
My favorite castle is Meersburg, my favorite room in a castle is the drinking room in Burg Lichtenstein.
Have I said all this before?
