During the Second World War, a bunker was built in the castle. It is very solid, first we went down here

And then it turned out that this was not even half the depth of the bunker.

View of the Rilke Trail

A 2-kilometer Rilke Trail passes along them. As you might guess from the name, it is named after the famous modernist poet Rainer Maria Rilke. In 1912, while he was in the castle, he began writing Duino Elegies, a series of 10 deeply philosophical and mystical poems, considered to be his greatest creation.
