    On the ruin Sausenburg you reach the remnant of a hill castle, which was built in the 13th century and was in the possession of the Margrave of Sausenburg. Today, the ruin of the castle wall, single wall remains and a castle tower is preserved, which you can climb and which offers in clear weather, a magnificent view. It is said in the vernacular that there are blue lights floating around at night and treasures are buried there where they go out. So, open your eyes!

    A really nice little romantic castle ruin. It is worth to climb the tower. You have a fantastic panoramic view. A real highlight.

    Castle and ruin are, of course, as expected at the highest point ;-).

    Small but interesting castle ruins, with the possibility to climb the well preserved castle tower. Good views of Blauen and the Markgräflerland.

    90 steps in the tower, which are worth.360 degree panorama - cool, unfortunately a bit hazy today, but you could see Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

    Beautiful ruin with walk-in tower. I was fascinated by the more than 2 meters thick foundations of the tower.
