Hochburg Ruins

The last couple of days of our stay in Germany it was pretty hot, so we had to scratch our hiking plans and find activities that were less strenuous in the heat. We visited the ruins of Kastelburg near Waldkirch and Hochburg near Emmendingen instead.

The latter is quite an impressive structure (Google Maps, switch to Satellite/Earth layer), it must have been quite the sight in its day, sitting upon that hill and overlooking the surrounding valleys and pastures.


Thoughts? Let me hear them.
