Yesterday, we went to a garden exhibition, at Burg Trausnitz - a fortified castle which originally dates back to the early Middle Ages (1150 A.D.). It is situated on top of a hill, as is to be expected and is surrounded by a fortress wall.
Well, let's just say I found the site much more impressive than the exhibits. But the castle was well worth visiting!
Inside the fortress - this may have been a maut at some time.

View from the burg to the city and the river Isar below.
Isn't this a cool window?
There were such interesting architectual details everywhere.
