Halloween in Frankenstein Castle

It was quite a long drive but it was worth it. It was my first time visiting and spending Halloween in Frankenstein Castle. Thanks to good friends for taking me there. I did not expected too much people visiting the castle. You cannot really go directly to the castle. You have to go instead to Pfungstadt in the district of Darmstadt-Dieburg in the state of Hesse. At the back of Toom Baumarkt, you can take the shuttel bus for around 15 minutes ride going on top of the hill where castle is located.

In the castle compound, you can see some kiosks selling Halloween stuffs. There is also a small beer tent and a restaurant inside. I am imagining how interesting it is to have one of this Restaurant Cook Jobs. Would you believe that the restaurant was so busy this afternoon. I guess there are thousands of visitors who visit the castle for the whole duration of the Halloween celebration.

Frankenstein Castle is a hilltop castle about 5 km south of Darmstadt in Germany. Modern claims of the castle having an influence on the work of Mary Shelley remain controversial.

This is definitely a good place to celebrate Halloween... a spooky and creepy place like this sets a horror and scary tone for a Halloween. Who's Mary Shelly by the way?

Happy Halloween!
