    The castle Landskron, also called ruin Landskrone, is the ruin of a high medieval hill fort at the town of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler in the district of Ahrweiler in Rhineland-Palatinate (Germany). The hill castle is the seat of the Burggraves of Landskron and played a significant role in the clashes between Staufers and Welfs.

    The ascent from the train station Heimersheim might be a little bit difficult, but afterwards the view towards the Eifel and the Rhineland is worth the little effort because afterwards Flach goes to Oberwinter and down to the Rhine. Final stop at the Arp Museum Simply wonderful 👍

    The Maria Hilf chapel (Landskrone), which is listed as a formally protected cultural monument in the Rhineland-Palatinate list of monuments, lies to the west below the Landskrone. Already in antiquity there should have been a pagan cultural site in its place. A lord of the Landskrone had the chapel built today after his three daughters were saved from robber knights. For this reason, it is also called "Three Maidens", but also "Five Maidens" and "Marienkapelle". King Otto V issued a protective letter to the chapel in 1212. Although the chapel was always subordinate to the Heimersheim parish, the Heppingen family today looks after the building. Landskron Castle itself is said to have had several chapels of its own within the castle complex.

    The chapel is listed in the Rhineland-Palatinate List of Monuments as a formally protected cultural monument as follows: “Maria Hilf Chapel under Landskrone Castle, Marienkapelle first mentioned in 1212, Romanesque in essence, the western gate at the beginning of the 13th century, small hall building with roof rider. Monument zone with castle Landskrone. "

    The summit of the Landskrone is a nature reserve.
    On the site of the ruins, next to a flat meadow (former restaurant), there is a hut where you can take shelter in stormy weather, some benches, ruins and a cross on the summit. The view is roughly the same as from the chapel. Overall, a nice spacious place

    The view from the plateau of the Landskrone ruins is worth the climb.

    Although the climb was very strenuous. If the view was beautiful, unfortunately this tour was recommended to us as easy, but that should be corrected

    A fantastic view of the Ahr valley towards Bad Neuenahr; The Rosary Church is striking; and the Ahrweiler behind it.
    In the foreground, the Ahr Valley Bridge (A61) is 55 meters high - underneath is the Appolinarsquelle with the neighboring bottling plant.

    If you go in the direction of the ostrich farm you can buy fresh eggs. Or just watch the chickens pecking.😄
