    Who wants to get an impression of Kasendorf and its surroundings, goes best to the Magnus Tower, which rises to 498 m south of the village on the Turmberg.
    68 steps up the spiral staircase and one steps through the glass exit to the round tower parapet. Here you have a magnificent view of the village Kasendorf with the Prelitz, the horizon line form in good weather Frankenwald and Thuringian Forest.

    The castle Kasendorf is an outgoing summit castle at 498 m above sea level. NN on the 110 meters above the valley lying Turmberg with the Magnus tower over the community Kasendorf in the district of Kulmbach in Bavaria.
    On the 14.5-acre unbewaldeten summit plateau of the tower hill were pre-and protohistoric three-walled fortifications, of which still remains of moats and trenches from the 5th century BC. Are recognizable. On the southwestern edge are remains of a ashlar wall and near a gate (8th / 9th century) and a basement room. In the northern part was a chapel of 1445.
    On the site beyond the 200 meters long, 20 meters wide and up to 5 meters high section Walls (10th century) was probably built in the 11th to 12th centuries, the castle Kasendorf, of which nothing is handed down. After the demolition of the castle in 1498 on the foundation remains of the round keep the today 20 meters high, with 40 meters circumference and a wall thickness of 3.8 meters bulky Magnus Tower, a waiting and signal tower was built (see also order of 1498). To the castle belonged also the Kapellenacker, on which stood the castle chapel at a graveyard.
    There are explanatory signs on the castle grounds and on the tower visible from afar.

    My previous speakers, I can only connect, there are many different ways to tower, I think the most beautiful from the direction of Thurnau and through the quaint forest then directly over the ridge to tower. Then surprise the great view from the tower and so more
