At first glance, it seems that this castle miraculously survived all the years of looting, peasants' wars and regular lightning strikes. However, as it looks today, it is just over 120 years old. About 400 years before the reconstruction in 1890, the castle was struck by lightning and lay in the episode as a ruin. In the course of the restoration, many parts of the castle were not reconstructed true to the original.
Nevertheless, a trip is always worthwhile.
Admission (as of 2011):
Adults: 4 euros,
Young people, students and group discount 3 Euro (visit only possible in connection with a castle tour).

Very beautiful and well preserved Raubritterburg. Was extensively renovated by private owners. Be sure to do a tour! On the one hand, because it is worth seeing, on the other hand, to support the Beitzer and thus to be able to continue to receive the castle.

The castle Berwartstein is one of the many castles in the southern Palatinate. The special feature: It was not built "on" the mountain, but painstakingly chiseled out of the sandstone for decades. The traces of the chisels can still be clearly seen today. Another highlight is the well made of sandstone in the middle of the castle. This well secured the drinking water supply of the inhabitants even during a siege. The fountain has a depth of "104" meters! The best way to visit the castle is by means of a guided tour. There are a lot more exciting details about the castle and its inhabitants.
Have fun and enjoy nature!

A must be in the Palatinate.
Highly recommended, especially as a hiking destination to stop at lunchtime and coffee.
Absolute highlight of our visit to the Palatinate.
The tours go through the entire castle complex and give a detailed insight. Overall, very successful and the journey is worthwhile in any case.
