Burg Hohenzollern

It is an imposing, massive castle on top of a high hill. Worth a visit!

Here's the website and the wikipedia article.

As my friend Mark pointed out the entrance arrangements are a great example of defense in depth, or perhaps even about paranoia... there's multiple doors, multiple layers, always positions to shoot down on an advancing attacker. Nicely done. Very nice to look at, too.

Some pictures from inside:

More pictures from the outside:

And last but not least, dungeons discovered only recently, in the 2000s.
