A dear friend of mine has been wanted to check out a close-by castle for a long time now. We finally went yesterday since I’m always up for an outdoor adventure! Velburg is a town not too far from where we both live and actually quite close to many housing areas for people who are assigned to Hohenfels. The whole town is really on a big hill so we drove up through town to a little parking lot and walked up to the castle. Most castles in the area are really castle ruins and although this was no exception it was nice because one of the towers was mostly in tact and has steps available to climb. I really enjoyed seeing the town and surrounding areas from so far up. We are hoping to get more exploring done soon! Enjoy the view!
