Burg Altena

Burg Altena's history goes back to the 1100s, but it hasn't been lived in as a castle since the early 1600s.

The rooms and towers here have also been used as a military garrison, a county jail, a hospital, and a youth hostel.
Pieces of all of these histories are left lying around for the visitors who climb up the mountain to see them.
