Burgruine Flossenbürg

Hey all! It has been a long time. I have decided it is high time that I work through the significant back-up of photos I have stored on my computer. So, get ready for some throwback posts! Here is the first (and oldest) in the lineup. These photos are from our day trip to the Flossenbürg castle ruins in July of 2015. Tyler & Antje were visiting for the weekend, and this was during MiKela’s three month stay with us. It would have been ideal to get these photos posted, say, TWO YEARS AGO, but on the other hand, it is fun to look back on how itty-bitty the kiddos were.
Flossenbürg castle dates back to the year 1100, when it was founded by Count Berengar von Sulzbach. Over the centuries, the castle’s owner changed many times. In 1634, during the Thirty Years’ War, the castle and surrounding land was set on fire and never repaired. I took the first photo below at the top of the castle ruins, which sits 745 meters above sea level.
