More of Meersburg Castle

More of Meersburg Castle - Our Travels
This is a slightly different view of the castle. It is, like most castles in Europe, fully visible from any distance, as they are situated on the highest point. Why?.... so they can survey the surrounding area for approaching enemies. As all European castles, historically all the villagers lived nearby surrounding the castle walls. Reason, .... the villagers sought protection from the enemies of their overlords... or was it the overlords used the villagers as a protective shield from the enemies?? Applying the theory of the "first line of defense".
