The castle itself was as I remember it! Felt great to be where Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was filmed.

Located at the junction of two little rivers Schloss Bürresheim is one of the old residences of the Archbishop of Trier. As one of the few castles in the area it survived the centuries without major damage. The exhibits give an exciting insight into life several centuries back in time. Great fun for the whole family, and children are usually... More
