Visit To Kallmuenz Castle Ruins

I visited Kallmünz (German spelling) or Kallmuenz Castle Ruins last year in February. My husband was with me as we went walking around the place. This is what I love in Germany. Even small towns have some history and interesting things to offer. This place is around 15 minutes drive from us. I always pass this town if we drive in the back road going to Regensburg. You can see the castle on top of the mountain..It’s like waving you and telling “look at me..I am up the hill”..It is simply amazing how Germans preserved historical sites like this castle..

Kallmünz is a municipality in the district of Regensburg in Bavaria, Germany. Situated at the Naab River about 25 km north of Regensburg Kallmünz has conserved a beautiful medieval center. The main attractions are the ruins of the Kallmünz Castle above the town on a cliff and the old stone bridge over the Naab River. It was in Kallmünz that the Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky and the German expressionist painter Gabriele Münter met during the summer of 1903. Since then Kallmünz has been the constant home to a small Art colony.

Kallmünz castle, the seat of the former Counts of Kallmünz, has been fortified since the bronze age. Kallmünz also has a medieval bridge, bearing masons’ marks, over the river Naab.
