Burgruine Rauhenstein

Aaron's and Brigid's final adventure in Austria was to explore the castle ruins of Rauhenstein, just outside of Baden. I can't say that I know very much about the castle, except that it dates from the 12th century, and that it was one of the favorite haunts of Ludwig van Beethoven, whose nephew incidentally tried to commit suicide there. Anyways, though, there were very impressive ruins up on a hill overlooking the valley.
