[Postcard -- Scene: Vianden]
This is the prettiest card view I've seen of the castle &
The battlements of the castle & its walls are of immense
thickness and its small windows barred with heavy bars of iron.
The rock seems to run right into a castle for you can hardly
tell where the solid rock stops & the masonry part begins.
considering ancient methods of war - this must have been a place
of formidable strength.
Its deep well in the center and the most protected portion
of castle. The long underground passages. winding stairs- valted
halls and great pillars & arched ceilings of the chapel- its
dungeons & cells. were all of more interest to me than I have
words to express - to say it was a dream of childhood come true
would be but telling the truth. If I should have come on a trip
to Europe, my one object would have been to see places like this.
