Kipfenberg Castle

Kipfenberg, Germany

Kipfenberg Castle was built in the 12th century and was owned by the counts of Grögling-Hirschberg. In 1803 it was moved to the possession of state. Bodo Ebhardt restored and rebuilt the castle in the early 1900s. Today Kipfenberg is privately owned, but there is a Romans and Bavarians Museum in the outer bailey.

While bicycle touring along the Altmuhltal Radweg, we stopped for lunch. Excellent, crispy yet tender schnitzel, lusciously seasoned lamb shank that fell off the bone and melted in your mouth, richly flavored potato salad, and for desert, homemade, meringue topped, rhubarb kuchen, which, although we were full from our entrees, we somehow managed to make disappear as soon as it touched the table. Excellent service, great patio dining under umbrellas, and clean restrooms. This was a real find, do not miss it.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
