    The Madenburg was built as a hilltop castle on the eastern edge of the Palatinate Forest on a rock spur of the Rothenberg projecting into the Rhine plain. The ruin surrounded by forest is about 250 m above Eschbach
    The name "Madenburg" probably originated from "Maidenburg" and indicates that it was named in honor of the "Maid", ie the Virgin Mary. The name may be a translation of Parthenopolis (Greek "virgin city"). The Madenburg was first mentioned as "Maddenberg" in 1176; At that time, a Hermann von Madenburg received compensation for a sale of property made by Hermann's mother Ida von Madenburg to the Limburg Abbey without his knowledge.
