  • Jonas Wind

    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.

    Here is an info page:
    According to rheinpfalz.de from 16.5.2019 the blocking should last until 2020:
    "One or two hikers or castle fans may have noticed that the large scaffolding around the castle has meanwhile been dismantled, because" the securing work on the masonry is largely completed, "informs Claudia Renner, spokeswoman for Landesbetriebs Liegenschafts- und Baubetreuung (LBB) in Mainz, who supervises the work.
    However, a tour around the ruins with a staircase and a footbridge as a new access to the castle are to be built for visitors. The historically faithful footbridge is to replace the previous ramp-like landfill. For both projects ran the tenders, informs Renner. Problem: "The cyclical high capacity utilization of construction companies currently allows no forecast when successful contract awards come about."
