Wordless Wednesday: Heppenheim, Hesse, Germany, home of the Meinberg and Neher families, and Starkenburg castle



The village of Heppenheim in the Hesse region of Germany, ancestral home to my Meinberg and Neher families, from which my third great grandmother Eva Meinberg Haase (1861-1919) is descended. They were living here at least as far back as the late 1600s. This is the marketplace, with the medieval castle Starkenburg high on the hill - picturesque, right?
