We jumped off the freeway shortly thereafter, looking for a meal, but instead found the nice Naturpark Bergstrasse-Odenwald, which is labelled "Castle Frankenstein". Apparently the Frankenstein family of German nobles built this enormous castle on a hilltop starting in 948 AD; Mary Shelly apparently visited here in 1814. A bit down the road, we found a small town with a liquor store (for water) and a little Turkish restaurant (for food).
