Richtofen was killed in action on this date in 1918.
"...Inside the gloomy manor...The decor is marked by luxurious amenities...Warm: Rich colours dominate the plush interior..."
The nephew was brave, but a stone old killer. The recent movie about him is pure fantasy. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0365675/
Probably 0.0000008% of that castle is original due to the 90000000 government regulations and 9000000000 EPA standards that it’s had to abide by.
I hate to see the winter heating bill for that place.
I was given a private tour of this place many years ago .
Kind of bugged me they don’t say what the haunting consists of. So, here it is:
“Yes, the Richthofen Castle is indeed haunted; according to the book, “Denver’s Richthofen Castle” by O.J. Seiden (1980, Stonehenge
O.J. Seiden was a previous resident of the castle. In this book, he mentions friendly spirits in the old castle.
He and his family experienced many unexplainable events in that house. They always heard footsteps on the 2nd floor— when there was
no one there. Their dogs refused to go up on the second floor for a day or two after the sound of footsteps was heard.
Items also vanished and were not where they had put them. Then the object would end up in very unlikely places, sometimes days or
There is also a spirit in the tower. The Seiden family noticed coming home one night that there was a light on up in the tower. But there is
no electricity or lights up there. Then they thought that someone had gone up there. But— there were absolutely NO footprints in the snow!
They went up there- and no one was there.”
Might make a nice restaurant and/or B&B.
