Kallmünz Castle Ruins – Kallmünz, Germany

Estimated Hiking Time: 15 min

Total Distance: .5 miles

Difficulty Level: easy

Weather Conditions: 65 degrees

 

My first Europe post! I’m so excited to share my trip to Europe. The trip itself was one of the best vacations of my life. Everything was beautiful and the people were so friendly. I cannot wait to go back again! Since there were so many castles every where, I thought it would be fitting for my first post about Europe to be a hike to a castle.

The quaint city of Kallmünz is located in Bavaria, Germany. The city is home to about 3000 people and is influenced by medieval architecture. At the top of the city lies the Kallmünz castle ruins. The beginning of the trail head is found on the street of Vilsgasse. The hike itself is very short so we didn’t take many pictures of the actual trail. However, the view from the top was amazing.

After a 15 min walk, we reached the castle. castle

The castle walls were built in the 900s but the castle wasn’t constructed till the mid 1300s. It was destroyed by a fire in 1504, rebuilt, and plundered in the mid 1600s. It’s amazing that the doorway is still intact. You can see the medieval style influence just by the arch of the doorway.

The weather was a cool 65 degrees. This Zella half zip top kept me warm and wicked away any sweat I had from the climb.

This is the view from one of the balconies. I imagine the king would look out from his balcony to keep an eye on his village. view

These RayBan sunglasses shielded my eyes from both the sun and my allergies. I really like the big size of the frame.
