    The Madenburg was built as a hill castle on the eastern edge of the Palatinate Forest on a projecting into the Rhine valley rock foothills of Rothenberg. The ruin surrounded by forest lies about 250 m above Eschbach
    The name "Madenburg" probably originated from "Maidenburg" and indicates that it was named in honor of the "Maiden", the Virgin Mary. Perhaps the name is a translation of Parthenopolis (Greek "virgin city"). The first mention of the Madenburg as "Maddenberg" took place in 1176; At that time, Hermann von Madenburg was compensated by his abbot for a sale of estate to Limburg Abbey, which had been carried out by Hermann's mother Ida von Madenburg without his knowledge.
