Anyone who uses Bing as their online search engine knows they have pretty cool pictures of various things on their website. Today’s picture is just gorgeous. So I thought I would share it here.
Hohenzollern Castle near Stuttgart, Germany is about 147 years old, but this is the third version of castle on this land. The first castle erected here was in the 11th Century.
Due to war and disrepair, now stands the castle that was completed in 1867 by King Frederick William IV of Prussia.
One of the many fascinating rooms in this castle is the family tree room. This room is absolutely fabulous. The tree crawls up the walls with the names of the families of Hohenzollern. Just as in any family, there are different lines to the family tree. Here the family is split into the Prussian side and the Swabian side. This castle to this day still belongs to the family.
