on this particular sunday, it was raining here in dusseldorf....on most sundays from here until april it will be raining in dusseldorf! what to do, what to do?
i personally do not like getting wet. give me the snow, the heat, i will even take humidity over the rain. but as i have been told by my husband many, many times before; "if you don't do something just because of the rain here, you will do nothing at all!" so today instead of sitting in the house, we were off on our adventure.
i had heard about our location before, as many of my friends had visited it. we were heading to burg eltz, a castle that rick steves~travel expert~has said has his "favorite castle interior in all of europe".
many "castles" that we have seen in germany are simply manor houses, but this was a castle, and a very impressive one at that! we took the guided tour~in english~ which also included a tour of the treasury. the treasury was full of weapons, gold, silver and jewels, and managed to keep both small expats busy for a large amount of time.
if you are even in munstermaifield germany, you simply must take the time to visit this amazing castle.
