Schloss Auerbach in the Rain

| September 17, 2014


One rainy day when Sequoia and I had to kill some time, we stopped by the ruins of Schloss Auerbach.  The ruins sit atop a hill in the Odenwald, just off the Autobahn.



The ruins are not robust, but there are a few little details that will keep a child interested as you explore the grounds.auerbachauerbach


We did not stay long, but you can enjoy a meal or catch a jousting tournament at the castle.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to just walk around these ruins, but if you’re in the area it’s an all right stop.  After all, castle ruins never get old.  If I were to return personally, though, it would only be to eat or to see the jousting tournament.
