WARTBURG CASTLE _ 0467

IMG_3942 Wartburg Castle blends superbly into its forest surroundings and is in many ways ‘the ideal castle’. Although it has retained some original sections from the feudal period, the form it acquired during the 19th-century reconstitution gives a good idea of what this fortress might have been at the height of its military and seigneurial power. It was during his exile at Wartburg Castle that Martin Luther translated the New Testament into German. http://whc.unesco.org IMG_3943

Peel is a town on the Isle of Man, in the parish of German. It is sometimes called the only “city” on the island, because it is the home of the island’s cathedral. It is the third largest town on the island after Douglas and Ramsey but the fourth largest settlement, as Onchan has the second largest population but is classified as a village. Peel is also a House of Keys constituency, electing one MHK, who, since 2006, has been Tim Crookall.
