As you can see, it is quite high up above the main part of the town - although there is a road that winds its way up towards it, and there are some buildings that are closer than the ones in this picture.
This was my castle hunting food: local "pate aux noix" procured from the butcher shop. The woman who sold it to me said that it was made with walnuts, but the nuts in it tasted a lot more like chestnuts. It was good on bread, by itself - kind of sweet. I liked the crunch.
The castle was restored after the Grand Duke gifted it to the country thirty years ago - it had been stripped of a great deal of its walls and ceilings by a scrap-merchant who bought the place from the Dutch king (who owned it, I guess, at the time) in 1820. It has been very well restored, judging from the pictures we saw. There were a lot of rooms like this, though - pretty big and empty.
This is the well. It wasn't really that deep, but looking down into it gave me the heebie-jeebies.This is the view from one of the top rooms, out over the town and the surrounding hills. The views were amazing, but unfortunately most of the windows had faux-old glass in the panes, so it was difficult to see out.
Last night it was clear enough to take this picture from our hotel window, which doesn't show a whole lot. It's pretty evident that they waste a huge amount of energy lighting it up like this. It's not as though this is a big town, with a lot of people to look up at the castle at night.
