[Postcard -- Scene: Vianden]


This gets us a bit closer. The big tower on right corner is at least 25 ft in diameter - walls is between 4 & 5 ft. thick. The heavy battlement around edge is very heavy. And in very good condition considering its being built in 711 or it was inhabited then. The roof was made of copper - dismantled & sold in 1800 some time with exception of the chapel. The old tower described above has a dungeon of 30 or more feet deep.

See the firing holes and battlements around the place would take more than hand grenades to knock out this place.
