Wolfstein Castle Ruins in Neumarkt OPf, Bavaria, Germany

It's almost a year now since my friend from Des Moines, Iowa made a visit in Europe. One of the countries she visited was Germany. I accompanied her to Wolfstein Castle, a castle ruins in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz (Upper Palatinate) in the state of Bavaria, Germany. We had fun during our visit in this castle ruins.

With regards to the history of the castle, It is said that its exact origin is not so clear. Around 1120 a certain Ulrich v. Wolfstein who belong to a noble class has said to have his seat here but proofs have been missing. Only with the Sulzbürger Gottfried II was clearly proven the first Burgherr or king of the castle. Since 1283, he called the castle Wolfstein.

You can find more information of the castle in the URL below. Sad to say, it is in German language.
