Seeburg Castle

Kreuzlingen, Switzerland

The site of current Seeburg castle was mentioned first time in 740 AD. The construction of current castle was started in the 11th century (around 1036). It was largely extended by Wichmann von Seeburg, later Archbishop of Magdeburg (1115-1192). The next renovations took place in the 14th and 15th centuries, when the castle was flanked by towers and a gatehouse under the rule of Counts of Mansfeld.

Later Seeburg was left to decay until the Counts of Ingenheim sold it in 1880 to the Wendenburg family. In 1923, Erich Wendenburg commissioned the architect Paul Schultze-Naumburg to completely restore the building in neo-Gothic style.

Fantastic location with fantastic terrace with views over the lake. Small menu with local ingredients, fabulously prepared dishes. Leave room for dessert!!

Smaller than expected. Dinner was nice. The location is great, just the restaurant itself was way more tiny than expected.

The food was well presented and delicious. The ambiance perfect on the terrace but the waiter bordered on rude. Refused to acknowledge he had served me black tea when I requested fruit tea. He just ignored my request. Only when I went to the chief of service was this corrected. Surprisingly poor service in such a fine restaurant. Not what we expected

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
