Castle tower
We had gone through Weilburg on our way to Limburg yesterday and decided to go and see it because we had driven past a castle and a triumphal arch that seemed interesting. It is situated in a very beautiful spot in the Taunus by the river with nice views, which we enjoyed from the castle grouds. It was very interesting to see people playing Bocchia there - both because I never knew it was popular in Germany and because it is one of the last places I would expect people to play. After a quick tour through the castle grounds we explored the old town in search for lunch. We decided to have lunch in the town square, where I was defeated by the most enormous Schnitzel I I have ever seen in my life. After lunch we strolled around a bit more, went to the triumphal arch and went back to the castle grouds to sit on a bench in the park for a while to enjoy the view over the hills. We had planned to have "Kaffee und Kuchen" there but the lunch had been too filling to allow that. After spending some time just admiring the landscape we decided to move on inthe direction of Bad Homburg to see the Saalburg, an old Roman fort.
