be afraid…be very afraid…

Only joking!!! no need to be afraid its only an old castle….

Only 5 km from Darmstadt there’s the world famous Burg Frankenstein, that may have inspired Mary Shelley’s book. I, of course, read the book in my teens when I was going through a pseudo goth phase, and was fascinated by all things dark and scary… Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, like the original Bram Stoker’s Dracula, were however really disappointing! they were not scary at all, and actually really boring to read.

Anyway, the castle it’s an interesting day trip if you’re in the area. The other cool thing is that the city of Darmstadt holds their civil service ceremonies in the castle’s small chapel – this is definitely a cool place to get married…
