  • Jonas Wind

    The rather unknown Meistersel - also called Modeneck or Modenbacher Schloss - was founded around the 11th century and destroyed in the 30-year war.

    Small but very beautiful ruin not far from the parking lot three beeches. The view from above is worth seeing. If you like, you can visit the ruin together with Neuscharfeneck and the Ramburg.

    There is an info page here:

    According to rheinpfalz.de from May 16, 2019, the block should last until 2020:
    "One or the other hiker or castle fan should have noticed that the large scaffolding around the castle has meanwhile been dismantled. Because" the securing work on the masonry has largely been completed, "says Claudia Renner, spokeswoman for the Landesbetrieb Liegenschafts- und Baubetreuung (LBB) in Mainz, who oversees the work.

    However, a circular path around the ruins with a staircase and a footbridge as a new access to the castle are to be built to guide visitors. The historically accurate footbridge is intended to replace the previous ramp-like embankment. The tenders were running for both projects, says Renner. Problem: "The cyclical high capacity utilization of construction companies currently does not allow a forecast of when successful contracts will be awarded."

    and the result of the renovation is impressive, beautifully done, great new prospects
    Because of the proximity of the parking lot at the WE a bit overcrowded

    Great ruin right at the Drei Buchen car park. The view from above is worth seeing. If you like, you can visit the ruin together with Neuscharfeneck and the Ramburg.

    Since the ruin has only recently been opened to visitors again, the flow of visitors is quite large on weekends - especially when the weather is nice. The rush of visitors will probably decrease in the coming autumn and winter weeks.

    Unfortunately currently still under construction. When we were there, there was active work on the castle. When the work is finished, as stated in the building permit, the castle can be viewed again from mid-November 2016.
