Finally a chance to take pictures with Zilla. She is absolutely incredible! Now I have to become a better photographer and we will become an unbeatable team! Today we visited Burg Kreuzenstein. It's a rebuilt romanticized castle. It already was for long time in ruins back in the 19th century, when it was bought by a noble hoarder. He bought absolutely everything he liked. He owned a castle in another part of Austria which is still stuffed from cellar to rooftop with all his purchases from roman tomb stones to furniture and paintings and of course pieces of architecture like ceilings and balconies.
Am I a little bit jealous? Yes, I am!
Burg Kreuzenstein is something like "Frankenstein's Monster". It's a European architecture puzzle. He put together everything he liked and called it a new old building. Recycling and upcycling before it became modern!
Right beside the castle is Adlerwarte Kreuzenstein, which is a falconry. Sadly it was so hot, that we skipped the show. We will come back in autumn - I'm sure of it! At least I got the chance to take some pictures and like to thank the team of Adlerwarte for it!
At least we got some nice beer and a decent meal in the Burg Taverne.
