We did a bit of exploring this weekend. We went to Cochem Castle on Saturday and Vianden Castle on Sunday. We had so much fun! Here are some pictures

Cochem Castle
This castle is only an hour away from us. Its situated in the Mosel valley surrounded by vineyards. 

It is believed that if someone touches the belly of this strange ornament and make a wish, their wish will come true. 

One of many gorgeous ceilings.

This piece of furniture dates back to the 15th century and is one item that is worth the most in the whole castle. 

7 foot armor. Must have been a big guy.

View of the Mosel river from the castle 

Going up the chair lift to see a nice view of the valley. Wyatt and I loved this.

Kylee also enjoyed it, but I had to beg James to go up with us. 

Panoramic view of the Mosel valley.

Vianden Castle (in Luxembourg)

A very old chest with a nifty locking system.

Gorgeous view of a ceiling. 

You can see the outer walls of the castle

Extremely large fire place

Kylee took this picture of us. :D
