Giebichenstein Castle in Halle (Saale), Germany

Giebichenstein Castle (Burg Giebichenstein) is part of the Romanesque Road (Straße der Romanik). Being a Burgward in the 9th century, the castle became a royal residence of Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor.

I took this photo on a river cruise with the MS Händel II along the Saale River. Today, the Kunsthochschule Halle (Academy of Arts) uses the old castle walls.
