    The Niederburg is next to the Oberburg 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 above you have a beautiful view over the Lieser.

    Great castle! Even dogs are allowed in! Great area around it and from beginner to advanced every hiker gets his money's worth!

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

    Sightseeing until 17:00 clock possible and worthwhile. Admission z. Zt. (Sept. 2018) 3, - €. Surefootedness is required during the visit. 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 is located on a rock in the Liesertal below the Oberburg within a stone's throw of it.
    But it is separated from the upper castle by the Lieser river, which surrounds the Niederburg on three sides. This valley location once had the advantage of being able to control traffic and block it in the event of a conflict.
    The Niederburg was first mentioned in documents in 1173 (according to other sources, 1133). It is the ancestral seat of the Lords of Manderscheid, who became important for the Eifel (and partly beyond) in the Middle Ages and ruled here as bailiffs of the Echternach Abbey on Luxembourg territory.
    In the course of time, large areas of the Gaus Bedense (Bitburg), including the suburb of Niedermanderscheid, had been donated to the abbey from royal property ...

    A considerable expansion of the castle and the fortifications took place under Wilhelm V. von Manderscheid, who also extended them over the suburb of Niedermanderscheid.

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

    The Niederburg, the younger of the two castles, is located on a rock in the Liesertal, a stone's throw below the Oberburg.
    But it is separated from the upper castle by the Lieser river, which surrounds the Niederburg on three sides.
    Like the upper castle, it was destroyed by the French in 1673.

    "The Niederburg, first mentioned in a document in 1133, was the ancestral seat of the Counts of Manderscheid.
    The castle, which has been uninhabited since 1794, is now owned by the Eifel Association.
    It has been restored and today, together with the Manderscheid upper castle, forms an impressive backdrop for the castle festival with jousting that takes place every year on the last weekend in August."
