Description
The German castle of Wartburg is one which is representative of the Bavarian castles which dot the south German countryside. It was built from 1068 onwards in a feudal fiefdom, and served as the residence for Martin Luther following his excommunication from the Catholic faith. Ingame, Warburg contains a pre-built Great Work of Writing and provides +3 Happiness, while it requires Chivalry.
The pre-build Great Work is Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses

Requires the Brave New World expansion pack, and credit to co-author Sukritact for the icon.

Thanks for this one, too. This really is an important place for German history.
But Schakal is right, its the Ludowings (hope this is the right translation for Ludowinger) who built the castle and the Wettins who conquered it. Both aren't Bavarians even if Wettin had some impact on Bavarias history - but as ancestors of the Windsor Family they had impact almost everywhere.
Maybe you should consider giving a free hospital (cf. Saint Elizabeth of Hugary[en.wikipedia.org] ) and reduce happiness?

Updated to BNW - now provides a Free Great Work of Writing instead of a free Social Policy

I love the real one. Ingame-Picture could be better but thanks for this nice Wonder.

I like this one, although I agree with the others that it should provide a free castle.

Free castle would be cool. I'm just happy that this gives a mid-game policy slingshot (waiting from oracle to sydney opera house blows >_>).

The Wartburg is located above Eisenach in south-western Thuringia, a stone's throw from the border with Hesse. This is very much central Germany, not the south and definitely not Bavaria. I'm picking nits here, I know, but German castles are hardly a Bavarian specialty. That said, it IS a lovely castle and highly representative of the development of castles over time. Definitely a better example of a proper castle than Neuschwanstein (the 'Disney Castle' which was built in modern times by a lunatic and actually IS located in Bavaria).

should provide a free castle as well and less happiness
