Wartburg Castle entrance

An entrance bridge and tunnel lead into the castle courtyard. (You can enter the castle grounds without buying a ticket.)

According to our Wartburg tour guide, the fortifications weren't meant to serve any defensive purpose: Wartburg Castle was built as a symbol of the founding Ludovinger family's power, wealth, and social status.
