Weesenstein Castle

»Weesenstein is not simply located there – but prouder and more surprising«, is what a fascinated visitor wrote in his travel report in 1801. This way or similarly may be the sensations of today’s visitors when they suddenly see the castle rise majestically on a rock spur, towering over the Mueglitz valley.
