    Default Bavarian Castle, Moat Included

    A 12th-century Bavarian castle surrounded by a dry moat is on the market in Kipfenberg, Germany, for $7.4 million. The castle, known as Burg Kipfenberg, sits on 27 acres and was built by knights in the Middle Ages.




    A wooden bridge leads to the gate. The walls were erected in the Middle Ages, but many of the other structures and towers were built later, some in the early 20th century.

    Not even if they gave it away.

    It's very ostentatious.

    It's like a combination of ostentatious and completely bleak. The moat is a definite selling point for me, though.

    I think you're right, it probably is freezing in there! But, I'd brave some cold if the place were actually closer to the original building and nicer to look at. This place is just weird and kind of ugly. I don't like the decor here, but would be interested in the story behind the castle.

    I love the space, although I'd blow up the inside and redo it. What's with the solid rock under the staircase? It looks like volcanic overflow. I love the kitchen space, although I'd completely redo it. And, yes, dry moat is attractive although I'd fill it with boa constrictors, I think.

    Keep it. I wouldn't take it even if it wasn't in Bavaria.

    I'd move in tomorrow. Not in love with the decor, but I'd love to live there.

    I kind of dig it. Hate most of the decor but I see potential. I think I just want to live in a castle...
