12 days of Christmas: day 6

On our trip down memory lane this year we stayed in Meersburg on Lake Konstanz. I took this photo at dusk, as the light was fading, of Burg Meersburg, Germany’s oldest inhabited castle. Its central tower was first built during 7th century, though the original structure is no longer visible. Burg Meersburg is known as the old castle, in reference to the neighbouring 18th century New Castle.

Back in the early 90s, we’d lived in Hegne overlooking the lake and Meersburg, a ferry ride across the lake had been one of our favourite places for a Sunday afternoon stroll, complete with Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake).
