  Bürresheim Castle
by MikeAtSea

Northwest of the town Mayen, Bürresheim Castle is located on top of a ridge. It is one of the rare examples, which shows its development from the medieval fortress into a Baroque living castle clearly.
Furthermore the original preserved furnishing of Bürresheim Castle shows visitors the style of living of the Rhenish nobility continuously from the 15th until the 20th century.
A visit of Bürresheim Castle is also worth from another point of view: It is a castle, which had never been destroyed by any wars. Therefore it is a rare example of a medieval living castle, which was inhabited until 1921.

Directions: In the Eifel Region - Highway A 61 take the exit Mayen
