    For this shot I didn't necessarily need my bike, the Castle Rheydt is 5km away, but I make some extra miles after our tour on Friday. . .

    On my way back from my 600 mile service in Frankfurt.

    This castle supposedly has a middle school on the grounds.

    I just ran across this picture thread, and thought Castel was an incorrect spelling <?xml:namespace prefix = v ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" /><v:shapetype id=_x0000_t75 stroked="f" filled="f" path="m@4@5l@4@11@9@11@9@5xe" o:preferrelative="t" o:spt="75" coordsize="21600,21600"><v:stroke joinstyle="miter"></v:stroke><v:formulas><v:f eqn="if lineDrawn pixelLineWidth 0"></v:f><v:f eqn="sum @0 1 0"></v:f><v:f eqn="sum 0 0 @1"></v:f><v:f eqn="prod @2 1 2"></v:f><v:f eqn="prod @3 21600 pixelWidth"></v:f><v:f eqn="prod @3 21600 pixelHeight"></v:f><v:f eqn="sum @0 0 1"></v:f><v:f eqn="prod @6 1 2"></v:f><v:f eqn="prod @7 21600 pixelWidth"></v:f><v:f eqn="sum @8 21600 0"></v:f><v:f eqn="prod @7 21600 pixelHeight"></v:f><v:f eqn="sum @10 21600 0"></v:f></v:formulas><v:path o:connecttype="rect" gradientshapeok="t" o:extrusionok="f"></v:path><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:lock aspectratio="t" v:ext="edit"></o:lock></v:shapetype><v:shape style="WIDTH: 27.75pt; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; VISIBILITY: visible; mso-wrap-style: square" id=Picture_x0020_6 type="#_x0000_t75" alt="http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/ne_nau.gif" o:spid="_x0000_i1025"><v:imagedata o:title="ne_nau" src="file:///C:\Users\RICK_F~1.WHE\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif"></v:imagedata></v:shape>

    wiki:

    Castel is the Occitan word for the French château and occurs very often in southern France

    Castle (from Latin: castellum) is a type of fortified structure built in Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages by nobility

    SSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo:

    If you are in a chateau in souther France you are in a Castel, or if in a fortified structure you are in a Castle.

    Well maybe "new" is also an incorrect spelling too ! :norton

    a "castel" is also a fortified structure in southern France.
    Things are complicated...:evil
