Favorite thing: This Carousel is next the the mountain ridge of the Castle grounds. I found it to be absolutely beautiful. Although I am not sure, it looks to have been from India. It was simply marvelous to look at.
Favorite thing: Without a doubt, Count Engelbert II was the most famous of the Counts of Berg. This statue of him stands in front of his castle. To this day, the castle dimensions are essentially those which Engelbert maintained during his short reign. At the time of his death he was just 40 years old. In just a few years - from 1218 to 1225 - he built up the castle to be his splendid ruling seat and an insurmountable mighty fortification. - His high office seemed to demand just such a fortification.

Favorite thing: Schloss Burg Castle has a small Catholic Church and Graveyard. The Graveyard is beautifully kept. The flowers around each grave are ornamental and colorfully placed.
