6067 It was a cloudy evening that night and the serving wench Eliza was just ready to call it a night and close the inn. It has been a busy day and the whole place was a mess. A guard of the lion order was just about to start his night shift guarding the inn when the door opened.
Both the serving wench and the guard started in alarm and turned to the door. A knight never before seen in this part of the kingdom stood in the doorway.
Both Eliza and the knight froze in their footsteps as they suddenly realized who is standing in front of them. Dressed in fine blue chainmail from head to toe this could be no other than the legendary Vaclav himself.
"There will be a party in this inn such as the world has never seen before." He said as he ordered 5 mugs of ale and suddenly began rearranging the tables...

What we have here is an inn built right into a castle wall. It's a masterpiece. Many say that this is the best castle set ever made other than the original 375 Castle. There is a little walkway between the wall and the inn itself that could serve as a stable for one horse. The front wall of the inn opens up for easy access inside. Inside is a yellow table and a chair made out of one 2x2 yellow brick. There is also a fireplace there.
This set includes 5 grey castle walls including one with a window design. Four mini-figs come with this set including 2 lion knights a knight with a blue chainmail and a maiden.
There are many rare pieces in this set. There is a clip-on flag with a "food" picture painted on it. There are also 2 corner and one regular castle wall piece with a unique red and black design. This is the only set ever to include these pieces. The blue door and the 2 yellow windows don't appear in any other castle sets but they do come in some basic and other themed sets.
This set would make a wonderful addition to your castle kingdom if you could ever get your hands on it. If you want to get it in an excellent condition with box be prepared to pay about $200 for it in an auction.
You could make yourself a little town square using this model, 6060 Knights' Challenge, 6040 Blacksmith's Workshop, and 6041 Armor Shop. These four sets could be ranked as civilian sets in the castle theme. There are no complaints because this is one of the best castle models Lego has ever made.
