Germany's biggest and spookiest Halloween parties are being held in the ruins of Castle Frankenstein near Darmstadt from 24 October to 9 November 2014. The ruins are transformed into a haunted castle crawling with creepy characters such as vampires, witches, monsters and werewolves. Every year, more than 15,000 horror fans enjoy a spine-tingling experience set within walls that date back thousands of years. For under-14s, there are special events staged on family days and children's Sundays, when the otherwise beastly monsters and witches are uncharacteristically friendly. It's a great day out full of fun and games... and screams!
