Burg Bentheim










This Sunday was a wonderful day. It was sunny! We went to church in the morning, had lunch with another couple Derreck works with, then took one of the new guys, Rob, to Germany with us to see the castle in Bad Bentheim, called Burg Bentheim. It was a real medieval castle. It was built sometime around 1020. Since 1421 it has been relatively the same as what we saw, other than some repairs to restore it to it's original plan. It was fascinating to go through it all. We went on the sentry walk, in the watchtowers, and in the keep. There was so much history! The website where you can get as much info as you care to is http://www.burg-bentheim.de/ and there is a Brittish flag emblem that will translate into English. And if not, just enjoy the pictures!
