Burg Rabenstein

Burg Rabenstein is one of the cooler castles in the area, so it was no hard choice to head over to the medieval market on Sunday. Such medieval festivals seem pretty popular here in Germany and this is the 4th that I’ve been to in the last couple months. Weather was dark and stormy most of the morning, but the day was spared any rain, luckily.

Lots of good food to buy. I’m especially fond of the roasted almonds. There are also people selling various ‘specialty’ wines, usually some sort of berry-wine with a cool name, but I prefer Mead and have picked up a bottle or two.

We sat down for lunch just as the band was starting to play some cool medieval music. I always like bagpipes anyhow.
