Another day, Another Castle

While our friend Dominic was in town, we took him to Hohenecken Castle, just a short drive from our place. It was a bit of trek up the hill, but a fantastic view over Kaiserslautern. We brought a picnic lunch and beers, obvs.

They don’t know exactly when it was built but estimate around 1200. So a pretty young castle ruin at 800 years old. Like many of the other castles in our area, it was put into ruins by the Frenchies in 1600ish.

It was a great day with Dominic showing him around our town. Hashtag CastlesInOurBackyardYo
