|Game||The Sims 4: Get Together|
Windenburg is a world introduced in The Sims 4: Get Together. Its architectural design—dominated by timber-framed houses—and its structural design, in combination with modern city aspects, is heavily based on central and southern regions of Germany. Castle-like ruins can be found on the mainland and most of The Crumbling Isle is surrounded by crumbling man-made walls. These ruins are inspired by Gothic buildings in Europe and they indicate the old age of the city.
