The Giechburg Castle is right outside Scheßlitz in Upper Franconia, Bavaria, Germany. It looks over Scheßlitz and the Bamberg region. Janet likes to call it The Topless Castle because the roofs were taken off in the Romantic Age. The castle was first mentioned in writing in 1125, and came into the possession of the prince-bishops of Bamberg in 1390. It as fun walking around there and seeing flowers growing out of walls and the 4290+ year old tree!
