Castle Berwartstein

This castle is in the southern part of the Palatinate Forest. It was one of the rock castles that was part of the defense of the Palatinate during the Middle Ages. [Rock Castle: castles where the stairs, passages and rooms are carved out of the rock to form part of the accommodation for defense.] This castle is a lot more complete than many of the ruins in the Palatinate. This is because it was rebuilt and re-inhabited after its demolition. You can even stay the night inside! They had a great patio where we drank beers and local wine. Yum.
