Hochberg I

My wife said she’s heard there was a ruined castle worth seeing near Emmendingen, about 45 minutes away by train. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon, and we be walking anyway. Why not walk in Emmendingen? It seems sometimes there is a ruined castle on every hill in Germany. The hill just outside Sulzburg, Castellberg, […]
