A couple of years ago I visited the ruins of the castle in Staufen in the Black Forest area of Germany. I had just gotten off the plane and was considerably jet-lagged and probably didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have.
Times change. Last week some friends sent us a real estate listing for an apartment in Staufen, just in case we were interested in checking it out. We need a place to live this fall and Staufen is a nice town. We have a viewing scheduled for Wednesday, though we won’t be present in person to see the place.
Given that though, it seemed like a good time to re-post my jet-lagged impressions of Staufen Castle. Who knows, it might become the view from my kitchen window.
