Exploring Castles

We went for a ride in the countryside last weekend and travelled to Austria, Lichtenstein then back into Switzerland. It had warmed up a bit last week so much of the snow had melted but the Alpen views were still awesome. We stopped in Austria at Feldkirch to walk around the medieval town and up to the Schloss (castle) then drove on to Lichtenstein where the castle is still owned by the Prince and is under reconstruction. We ended our day hiking up icy stairs to the castle at Werdenberg for a view of the town, the pink church and the lake with the Alps in the background. The medieval wooden buildings are still owned and occupied and windows have catwalks from street to windowsill so the cats can warm themselves by the windows. I don't have a working camera at the moment but here is a link to see this last adventure. Enjoy! http://www.swisscastles.ch/StGallen/werdenberg.html .
