  • Jonas Wind

    A jewel among the Palatine castles.
    Perfectly restored, with excellent Burgschänke and a view, as it is otherwise only from the Landeck to enjoy. On clear days you can look across the Rhine plain to the Odenwald.

    You can park right next to the castle.

    Admission free.

    Short trip to the Madenburg, but was closed because of bad weather! The Note: Closed in bad weather is to be taken literally. The main gate is then locked and the plant only from the outside to visit!

    Johannes Wind writes that you can drive up to Madenburg .. .. No, that's not true, you can not drive up to Madenburg. A piece you have to take your feet in your hand.

    One of the largest castles in the Palatinate. Very nice view of the Rhine valley and in a westerly direction over the hills of Wasgau. Managed with a small Burgschänke.

    Beautiful view along the Haardtrand, the vineyards and in the Northern Vosges! The food is delicious, but in good weather it may take a while!

  • Tom G.

    One of the most beautiful castles in the Palatinate, but in good weather very crowded, because almost directly approachable by car.
