Neunhof

(Continuing to catch up on old posts!)

In September my friend L and I went on a close-by adventure in the town of Neunhof.

First we went to the Schloss (Castle) Neunhof. Here are the surrounding gardens.



The Schloss.




The silent guards...









The moat.





Then we walked into town to find the Krafthof (fortified church).





Inside the walls.










Inside the church.




Then we searched for the remains of a nearby Labyrinth. After wandering about and asking for directions, we found it. "Irrhain" (crazy grove) circa 1676.




This is a sign that shows you the current paths (red) and the ruins of the old labyrinth garden.








On the way back we took a short cut through the farms. This is some kind of house in a greenhouse!




Mmmm...cabbage.







Carrots imprisoned.


Dahlias we saw on our walk through town.
