    The "Old Festivals".
    The area around the tower is a nice place to rest.
    Those with enough power in their legs can climb up the countless steps and enjoy the view.

    The wasteland with remains of ruins and a lookout tower is located in the forest north of Zirndorf at the highest point of the Rosenberg (easternmost foothills of the Cadolzburg Ridge). A residential path leads to state road 2242 (Fürther Straße).The first records of the fortification document a tower hill castle (motte) that existed in the 13th century. On April 29, 1306, the Zirndorf Imperial Minister Heinrich von Berg sold "vnser Burch den Berch" to the Burgrave of Nuremberg. He had already pledged them to the Nuremberg financier Groß. This is also the first documented mention. In 1325 the castle was called "zv dem alten Perge", and at the beginning of the 17th century it was first called "Alte Veste".[1]During the turmoil of the city wars from 1387 to 1389, the existing fortifications were razed by the Nurembergers in 1388.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alte_Veste

    During the Thirty Years' War Zirndorf moved into the center of European history with the Battle of the Old Veste in Zirndorf's municipal forest. There, the Protestant king Gustav II Adolf of Sweden and the commander-in-chief of the imperial Catholic army, Albrecht von Wallenstein, faced each other in September 1632 with their troops. While the Swedish king entrenched himself with his army in Nuremberg and put on a sprawling ring of field fortifications around the city, Wallenstein had in the area of ​​today's cities Zirndorf, Oberasbach and Stein build one of the largest military military camps. Between 17 July and 23 September, around 50,000 mercenaries and a companion of about 30,000 people lived in the 16-kilometer camp.Source and more info's: zirndorf-tourismus.de/wallenstein
