    The Niederburg is next to the upper castle one of two castle ruins in Manderscheid. It dates from the 12th century and is much better preserved than the upper castle, although it was destroyed by the French in the 17th century. The castle is surrounded on three sides by the river Lieser and from the top you have a nice view over the Lieser.

    Really nice castle! Although destroyed, but still nice to look at! The hike to and around the castle is even more beautiful!

There are a few explanatory panels that help you to understand the facts. Ascent to the tower possible, torches are recommended on hazy days as there is no lighting in the tower.

    The Niederburg lies on a rock in the Liesertal below the upper castle in stone throw distance to this.
    But it is separated from the upper castle by the river Lieser, which surrounds the Niederburg from three sides. This valley once had the advantage of being able to control traffic and shut it down in case of conflict.
    In 1173 (according to other sources 1133), the Niederburg is first mentioned in a document. It is the ancestral seat of the for the Eifel (and partly beyond) in the Middle Ages became significant gender of the Lords of Manderscheid, who ruled here as bailiffs of the Abbey Echternach on Luxembourg territory.
    In the course of time large areas of the Gaus Bedense (Bitburg), including the suburb of Niedermanderscheid, were donated to the abbey from the royal possession ...
    Source: WikipediaA considerable development of the castle and the fortifications took place under Wilhelm V. von Manderscheid, who also extended them over the suburb Niedermanderscheid.

    The Niederburg, the younger of the two castles, lies on a rock in the Liesertal in Steinwurfweite below the upper castle.
    But it is separated from the upper castle by the river Lieser, which surrounds the Niederburg from three sides.
    It was, like the upper castle, destroyed in 1673 by the French.

    If you are on the Lieserpfad, you should plan the detour to the two Manderscheider castles in your hike.
