[Postcard -- Scene: VIANDEN, Haupteingarg der Schloßruine, Entrée principale des Ruines]


Well here is a close view of the last arch. The drive is lined on each side with evergreen trees, making a beautiful appearance. Above this door (not shown in picture) there is a stone alcove or shoot, where molten lead or hot water or any thing could be dropped on the heads of a besieging party.

On thru you see another door. This part is occupied by an old man who shows people thru, collects sourvenirs. I saw pieces of furniture made in 1400 & 1500. and paintings too. all kinds of arms, spears, swords, helmets every thing it seemed to me along that line.
