RUINS OF WERTHEIM CASTLE IN WERTHEIM, GERMANY
Our oldest son joined the Army Reserve after graduation from University and went through officer training and paratrooper school. He was transferred to Germany for his active duty service in military intelligence. He eventually served in Desert Storm in a remote part of the Saudi Arabian desert. We visited while he was still in Germany. These photos represent just a small part of what we saw there. The photo above is of the castle from the side of the valley were the U.S. military base was located.


This is a view from a little further down in the descent toward town. There is a smaller river to cross into the main part of town from this side.


This stair way led from the town area up to the castle grounds and the trail shown in the photo on the right. There was a trail through the grounds of the castle. This was in addition to a curving driveway that enters the front of the castle area as seen in the first two photos. I am in the picture to give perspective.
