  Burg Furstenberg
by toonsarah

Burg Furstenberg was built in 1219 by order of an archbishop, the bishop of Cologne, to provide protection of his estates and to levy tolls. Like the other nearby castles it was destroyed in the War of the Palatine Succession, but unlike many of the others, it has not been restored. But I think its 82 foot high tower and ancient walls look all the more ?Romantic?, crumbling into the hillside above the river like this.

Not open to the public.
