Castles are a big presence in Germany.  On the Rhine River alone there are at least 5.  When we are looking for some quick day trips on our weekends off, we visit the nearby castles.  Joe flies a route down the river and sees a lot of these castles from the sky.

The castle, well, part of it anyway.  The french destroyed the castle:

The best part about the castles?  The views.  The worst part about the castles?  The climb.  We are hoping our next castle tour is the one Disney modeled his Magic Kingdom castle after.
