Hohes Schloss (High Castle)

Fuessen, Germany

"Hohes Schloss" (High Castle), the former summer residence of the prince bishops of Augsburg.
Below the Castle is the Baroque complex of the former Benedictine monastery of St. Mang, whose history goes back to the 9th century.
Füssen has Saint Mang (Magnus of Füssen) as its patron saint. His original burial place was in the small chapel he built. His bones were transferred to the crypt of the church built in 850.(Source: Wikipedia)

Great clarity and details here. Clock tower is wonderful and the black cupola is so interesting! You've made roof tops looks magical! V

Beautiful angle. I have taken the other side, with much less light.
Time to begin to be hungry Tom :-)
