    A popular place to walk on a Sunday afternoon. Shady areas by the river to watch the ducks and when we visited there was a dog show to entertain us - excellent.

    The river Danube rises in the castle grounds. The spring is now inside a fountain and although it looks good there is little to detain you once the photos are taken. It's then a good time to wander around the gardens.

    The tap house of the nearby Fürstenberg brewery. Sells the full range of beers and very good food.

    Food is regional with a touch of beer, since the place is close to famous Fürstenberg Brewery

    Favorite Dish: Weissbier-Gulasch (minced meat in wheat beer gravy)

    Busy cafe in the town centre, catering for all ages although most we considerably younger than us (not all). Impressive menu to choose from and huge portions of well cooked and tasty food.
    Very happy with our choice.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory is definitely the hospitality of our host here. My second fondest memory would have to be the great local beer, Furstenberg. It's slightly skunky, like Heineken but not nearly as strong. There's a Furstenberg brewery here, and they give tours sometimes, although only in German as far as I know. They also have a nice gift shop if you're looking for souvenirs.

    Favorite thing: The great Danube River, which flows almost 1,800 miles across Europe to the Romanian coast of the Black Sea, begins right by here. Several towns in this area, including Donaueschingen, have built wells to claim that their town is the "source" of the Danube River, or Donae River as it's called in Germany. (Note that Donaueshingen appears to be named after this river.)

    However, our local friend said these are really just marketing ploys, because the Danube doesn't spring from the ground at all, it is formed by two other rivers joining together, the Brigach and the Breg. It was pretty amazing to think that this water would end up in the distant Black Sea, past Austria, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania!
