I only saw from a distance

The castle is located in Wächterburg on the shopping street Eger - Asch - in Central Germany. It was a fort in the 17th century, surrounded by a baroque castle. Now runs the restoration; unfortunately very long. The castle served as a guard castle on the trade route Eger - Asch - to central Germany. It was later a fortress until it was rebuilt in the 17th century as a Baroque castle. Recovery is now in progress; unfortunately very slow.

Castle Park ?. Unfortunately, the chateau is half-ruined.

The torso of the castle at the end of the republic is not much worth the state

A nice castle, built essentially as a wall around a church that is in the middle - perhaps on the site of a former fortress. You can see that the owner is trying to fix it and come back because some parts have been completely collapsed. At the same time, there was a very nice park in front of the castle, so hopefully the owner can handle it and once we can see the whole castle from the inside. ?

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
