Die Burg Pyrmont is located near Münstermaifeld and Cochem-Zell in Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. It stands on a slate rock above a waterfall in the southern Eifel mountains. It was built in the late 1100s and first appeared in official documents in 1225. In 1990, the castle grounds were opened to visitors. In the interior, old furnishings can be seen, which fill the rooms with history and recall previous owners. The castle can be rented for weddings and other events.

„There is a German word, Sehnsucht, which has no English equivalent; it means ‘the longing for something’. It has Romantic and mystical connotations; C.S. Lewis defined it as the ‘inconsolable longing’ in the human heart for ‘we know not what’. It seems rather German to be able to specify the unspecifiable. The longing for something – or, in our case, for someone.”

― Julian Barnes, Levels of Life
