The landmark of Feldkirch is the Schattenburg Castle. This castle had been home to a noble family from the 13th century and then to the Habsburg’s . Eventually, it became a historical landmark, a time capsule, and even a place to play miniature golf now.
For the three of us, admission cost about 21 euros, and I had to leave my backpack inside a locker.
Walking through the castle was a one-way tour. So, you had to turn back where you started. Wooden furniture from beds to tables filled some of the rooms while other rooms housed full-body knights’ armor and hunting rifles.
Plus, don’t forget the chapel, the kitchen, and a small dining hall. Each room led to another room as the light penetrated through the glass windows. Life seemed simple despite their nobility.
I had no significant expectations when visiting the castle or even Feldkirch. I was just excited to go on another historical adventure. (Yes, unleash the nerd!)
“Have a nice day! Thanks for visiting,” a lady who worked there addressed us as we made our way down the steps.
Below us in the courtyard, a few families dined with the open sky above them – perhaps on the town’s specialty: Wiener Schnitzel.
While walking outside, the sun shone through as we made our journey back to town.
Have you been inside a castle before? I hope you’re well! (:
