Türkensturz, Seebenstein und Schiltern (Schloss Pitten)

Den Türkensturz zu "erobern" war schon recht lange auf meiner Liste ganz oben. Jetzt hatte ich endlich mal Gelegenheit dazu. Wetter top, Ausrüstung zuverlässig - 3 Tolle Flüge hintereinander (Türkensturz, Schloss Seebenstein, Schloss Pitten bei Schiltern) - was will man mehr. Nur der 4te geplante Flug bei der Hohen Wand wurde dann von Paragleitern vereitelt (der Luftraum war nicht frei).
Infos zum Türkensturz
Ausserdem hab ich bei dem Video jetzt mal ein "Intro" getestet - bitte sagt mir bescheid, wie es ankommt. Ist es auf die Dauer zu nervig? Es wäre als fixe Einleitung mit Wiedererkennungswert geplant.



The main reason for this little trip was a rock formation called "Türkensturz" - Turkfall... Next to this ruins there are two castles (Seebenstein and Schiltern). Which throne on a hill next to the highway I drive often. Always looked over to the majestic castle and thought about FPVing it.
Please also tell me what you think about my intro...

More info on the Türkensturz:
It is a ruined castle on a steep rock face at Gleissenfeld near Seebenstein in in Lower Austria.

The name comes from the time of the Turkish wars, especially from the years 1529 (first Turkish siege of Vienna) and 1532 since when the Turks were in Pittental. A detailed tradition about the origin of the name is missing, however, there are numerous myths and legends. One of the legends says that a Turkish troop of warriors from Kasim Bey chased a girl and she tricked them by jumping to the side close to the abyss and the riders fell off the cliff. In another version of the same legend is that girl was the Virgin Mary, who suddenly disappeared from the brink and then the rapacious Turks fell down the cliffs.
Near the abyss Prince Johann I of Liechtenstein built artificial ruin Türkensturz at 1824. Today, the area around the ruins are a popular tourist area and part of the natural park-Seebenstein Türkensturz. The rock wall is a striking landmark on the southern motorway.
