Burg Schwalenberg

Once upon a time, my husband and I belonged to a tight-knit group of friends. We called ourselves The Family, and we participated in several fun activities together. One such activity was spending a weekend together....in a castle.

The Nitty Gritty

If you're looking for much information on the city Schieder-Schwalenberg, you won't find it here. Our trip consisted of a late Saturday (after most businesses had closed for the day) and a Sunday (when all the businesses are closed) and we weren't really able to do too much in town. We were staying in the castle and wanted to concentrate on enjoying that. I do have a few pictures of the town itself, and I will try and post them where I can.

In case you want to get there...

...here is the map from the back of the brochure. From what I remember when I booked it, look for Schieder-Schwalenberg to be approximately 70kms south of Hannover, between Autobahn 2 and Autobahn 44. Have a fun trip!
