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

    At present, restoration work is being carried out on her, so she is not walkable.

    Unfortunately currently still construction site. When we were there, work was actively going on at the castle. If the work is finished posted as in the construction release, the castle can be visited from mid-November 2016 again.

    Sorry, currently no access for restoration work (10.09.2017). The expected end of the renovation is Nov. 2016 indicated - that could be scarce.

    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."

    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.
