That's it! I only knew it as Castle 915-colm. I had planned to stay there if the weather had been better and I actually could have driven to Paris.ecdysiast said:Castle Colmberg is quite close to Rothenburg, 19km east on the road to Ansbach.

The town is quite small and has no amenities but the restaurant in the castle is very good, and an excellent German breakfast is included with the room.
