View over the castle from Tanstein A view of Grafendahn, the castle in the middle of the three castles A view over the castle from Altdahn
Looking down from the highest remaining tower Our third stop for the day was the castle (well, three castles) of Dahn. The first part of the castle, Tanstein, was built in the first half of the 12th century. The next part, Altdahn at the other end, was built in the early 13th century. Finally Grafendahn was built in the middle between the two other castles around the mid 13th century.

The group of three castles stretches 200 metres along the crest of five sandstone cliffs. The castles of Dahn were destroyed in 1689 and only the ruins remain. Grafendahn is probably the most intact part including the highest tower of the castle, the pictures to the left and right were taken from it.

Our last stop for the day was Burg Trifels, another castle. But it was already closed, so no pictures of it.
Could that be Lady Dahn? No, it's Imke...
Armin on the way up Could that be the ghost of Sir Dahn? No, it's only Armin
