The Castle Augghhh

A few weeks ago, I ran across a mention in a guide book of the Castle Aggstein, about 90 minutes from Vienna. Well, of course you know what my Monty Python-obsessed better half started quoting.

 

Clearly, we had to visit, and soon. In fact, Aggstein proved to be somewhat less Pythonesque than the place we stopped on the way home, Schallaburg.

It was a 59 degree rainy, windy day (in July!) and so I didn’t get a lot of good photos. But the castle was fun to climb around, the food in the tavern was great in a rib-sticking sort of way, and the weather cleared up on the way home for a nice drive along the Donau. Just another Sunday in Austria.

  1. I believe I like the Queen Ann’s Lace best of all! Wish I had a copy of it to frame. However, I really enjoyed seeing all of the pictures. Thanks so much for sending! love, Nanny
