Today's Castle: Haldenstein
German source properly names this a Pompgebäude, but when you search for Haldenstein castle it is mainly pictures of this that come up. The builder was actually a French lawyer named J.J. Caston, who had married the widow of the previous lord. So the fierce tower of old Haldenstein was left to eagles and landslides, and to our imaginations.
