Looks like its near a city in the former 'Zonenrandgebiet', where about 40 years ago I had to listen to a (rather boring) speech, delivered by the mayor, who later became our Minister of Finance.

Back in the early seventies, whenever our guesthouses/bars here in my area closed at 1 a.m. and we still felt like another beer, we drove with our bikes to a café/bar near Trier, that was always open until 4 a.m., with live music/bands and everything. The café's name was the same as this castle's. A bit too complicated to pronounce for some US GI friends, so they just called it 'the shoe' (also the way 'Kaiserslautern' became 'K-town').


Yes, the mayor of this city became Minister of Finance.  Another clue: After a lost battle a French king was brought to this place as a prisoner.
