German Castles
« on: August 26, 2008, 10:13:56 AM »
Well I was trying to find the name of the ruin castle(?) that I used to live by in Germany and ran across this.

I though my Queen, Petra and a few others might find it interesting.

Still haven't found it's name yet but I'm still looking.

Does anybody even remember who Wormy is?

Burg Hohenzollern

And Schloss Ortenburg

More to come as I find good pictures. :P

Does anyone know if they used an actual German castle in Gabriel Knight 2?

Neuschwanstein. :P It's in Bavaria and was built by Ludwig II, who also built Linderhof and added to Herrenchiemsee and has very nice Baroque interiors. :P

Indeed. :D

Most of the themes are mythological and Wagnerian, especially focusing on the Knights of the Swan and the Order of the Fleece and the Ludwigsorden (having been a knight of both orders of chivalry). :) The throne room is Byzantine in style anyway and there is indeed a grotto. :P

You can take quite a nice tour of it here. :)
