Burg Frankenstein (Frankenstein Castle) remains a little ruined, about 30 km south of Frankfurt, Germany. If you have your own transport, it's an easy afternoon trip from Germany's second city. Frankenstein Castle is certainly not Germany's largest or most interesting castle, but from these ruins it is possible that Mary Shelley found inspiration for her gothic novel, Frankenstein. Whether this is true or not, the castle was certainly home to an eccentric scientist, Konrad Dippel –responsible for animal hair-raising experiments–and human body parts. Frankenstein Castle is a fairly subdued and peaceful spot for about 364 days of the year, but it comes to life (or should it be, resurrects from the dead?!) once a year, for a huge and frankly terrifying Halloween Festival, every October 31st.
