The castle ruin of the Schmidtburg is not only an impressive building from the Middle Ages, but also an official campground on the Soonwaldsteig. When the sun approaches the horizon in the evening, you can choose a place between the walls - assuming you have registered in advance. Registration with the Burgvogt Hans-Georg Gerlach is best done by phone 06752 - 3160.

This beautifully preserved castle ruin is definitely worth the short detour from Soonwaldsteig. The absolute highlight is an overnight stay in a tent on the ruins. In our case total peace and a very special feeling as "lord of the castle for one night" :)

Really beautifull. I ran the Soonwaldsteig and camped at Schmidtburg for a small fee. The Burgvogt, Mr. Gerlach, is a lovable elderly gentleman who regularly looks after the right. I was pleased to meet him and chat with him a bit and could even buy him a Kirner ... (🤫, he can not bring much here 😉)
