Absolutely. And, it's the only castle so far where boiling oil is still handy.

Heidelberg Castle overlooking the Old Bridge (2003).

I worked in Heidelberg for 2.5 years and walked across this bridge to work each day. I recommend Heidelberg for a visit. It is very popular with tourists, yet still a proper, working German university town. Interesting places nearby to visit and a beautiful location in the Neckar Valley. Excellent restaurants and brew pubs.

Here's the story - our first time on a motorcycle in Europe (2007 - shipped our bike from Australia).  We had pre-booked a hotel room for one of our first nights (early May) in the town of Bouillon in the Ardennes.

The room was old, but comfortable enough, and this was the view out the window in the afternoon:



and then when it got dark:



Bloody magical!

Cilgerran Castle (Wales)





Feck me-a late Welsh castle actually built by the Welsh! A friend of mine did the archaelogical dig on Cilgerran. Fascinating place.
