Our photo of the week was taken at Burg Lichtenberg of the village of Thallichtenberg. The first people known to live in this area were from the stone age, later the Romans took up residence. The nearby castle was first built in 1200 and this nearby village has survived though wars and dueling rulers. Its 600 or so residents have a lovely view of the castle, which today holds a museum and restaurant.
