Anyone have any photos of Berg Eltz in the Eiffel region? Also, could someone repost that beautiful photo of the Electors Palace and Constantine Basilica here? I was standing in that very garden a number of years ago. That photo looked so fresh, I had to do a double take to see if I was somewhere in it. LOL Thanks guys.

Hi,
Just three of the castles in the neighborhood of my birthtown :
Helfenberg :

The castle was destroyed in the Thirty Yeasrs war

Wildeck

this castle was destroyed in the German Peasants War, but rebuild one year later. It holds now a winemakerschool

Castle Neipperg

Now a famous wineyard

( Please don´t beat me, it´s my first Post )

I´m raised in the village belows this castle :



Alternate View



a Closer look to teh outer gate :



The View from castle Hohenbeilstein to castle Lichtenberg


This is castle Lichtenberg, Oberstenfeld Baden-Württemberg
( Attentention : there are some more castles with that name ! )
It´s one of the best remaining exampels of the architecture of the "Staufer" It is nearly "original" the biggest change is the 2nd Tower who was in the same hight of the others and connected with a frontalwall

Wiki ( german ) :


All Pics Selfmade
I tried yesterday to make a better Pic from the valley, but sometimes its rotten : As soon as you get your camera, clouds apears from nowhee an its rains !
So I had to use a very old pic.

And to answer your question Erbse :
today I life near Horb - the little gate to the Black Forest

For all Hohenzollern Palace Lovers I found an older Pic on my Diskspace. Several Years ago the US Airforce ( and also the Navyforce ) had a very large archive of presspictures online, and I spend many nights to download em.
This Picture is not longer online, so I hope I have the right to repost it.
Better ask for permission bevore using it comercially,


It´s the 52st Fighter Wing of Spangdahlem
credits to the unknown photographer

Cause I´m short of time, just another two Pics of Hohenzollern and Jets, I found at the US Airforce Page :

Although the Pics are impressive, I´m very glad they stopped using my home area for low-altitude flight training !!!



One F15 Eagle, two F16 Falcon and a A-10 Thunderbolt


single F-16
