Fuji in Europe Part 25 - Altenburg Castle

It's my last day in Europe.  We didn't want to travel to far, but then again you don't have to travel very far in Germany, to run into history.  This time it was a little town called Bamberg.  When I say history, this town is about 1000 years old.  Surrounded by 7 hills it's often referred to as the Franconian  Rome. On one of the highest hills lies the Altenburg Castle.  It's a small structure, built in the early 1100.  For about 300 years it a was a quite home for local bishops.  It's a beautiful spot, with great views on the surrounding country side.  Even better views are from the castle tower, that is still climbable.  I guess it was good to be the bishop in those days.
