laurim has indicated that this thread is about Europe

I've just found out that I have a long weekend gig in Berlin next October! I'm thinking of extending my stay and doing some sightseeing and wonder what people recommend seeing in that area. I've already been to Frankfurt, Munich and Austria several times years ago so I'm looking for somewhere else, not too far from Berlin so I don't lose time traveling. Open to eastern europe. I've been to Prague and Brno but it was a while ago as well. Does anyone have any must-sees in the area? Does anyone know of any special events happening there October 22-28?

I've found out about a Halloween-related haunted castle event at the Frankenstein castle near Darmstadt. So, it looks like I'll be working my way towards Frankfurt and end my trip at Frankenstein's Castle to celebrate Halloween!

From the website, it is throughout the castle courtyard like a huge haunted house. They have vampires, werewolves, crazy doctors, maniac with a chain saw and most people who visit dress up as well. Plus, there are places to eat and buy souvenirs. I've already booked a hotel they recommend because there was only one single room left! I have to wait until August 1st to buy a ticket and they say it sells out fast so I need to be on top of it. No, this is not a promotional post, lol.
