Hello everybody!! It's Sunday's in my city again along with Unknown Mami. All this while I had been waiting for spring like crazy. Spring did arrive, also along with it, it brought not so good weather. This got me disappointed as I had been wanting to visit beautiful places close to Lohr am Main. Not allowing the weather to be a dampener, we nevertheless proceeded to see what is known as the Wasser Schloss(Castle in water) of Mespelbrunn, a short drive from our village.
This medieval castle is surrounded by a moat filled with water, which makes it look very beautiful. It also has remained in its original state(dating back to the thirteenth century), thanks to not being destroyed during World War II, the reason being it nestled in the woods.

The castle is now privately owned by the family Ingelheim. As a result only a portion of the castle is open for public viewing. I could feel the castle being lived in thanks to the enormous amount of fresh flowers placed in every room.
If you would like to take in the sights of the castle at a slow pace sipping on some coffee, then this quaint little restaurant helps you do that.
Here's hoping the coming week brings in lots of sunshine and blue skies.
