    Ruin of the castle Hohenbaden with labyrinthine passages, walls and steps that lead to dizzying heights.
    The castle was built in the Middle Ages around 1100 on the western slope of the rocky mountain Battert above the then called Baden place. Under Margrave Bernhard I of Baden (1372-1431) was the Gothic lower castle, which was extended by Margrave James I (1431-1453) to the prestigious center of margraviate. The most important component is the Bernhardsbau (around 1400), whose pillar on the ground floor with a coat of arms worn by angels formerly supported the mighty vault. In its heyday, the castle had 100 rooms. In the same century, Margrave Christoph I expanded the New Castle in Baden, which was begun in 1370, and moved the residence there in 1479. The Old Castle then served as a widow's residence, in 1599 it was destroyed by fire. Only after 1830 was the ruin structurally secured.

    Still, because of the construction work, you can not access the tower and the higher levels. But today I could hear the wind harp in the interior wonderfully. In addition, I had not noticed that the restaurant is open again and invites you to rest.

    The castle is currently z. (1.11.2018) a construction site.
    You can only visit a little. In particular, all stairs are locked. You can not go anywhere to enjoy the view.

    View to Alsace / Vosges in clear weather - Baden-Baden is at your feet - the location excellent - suitable for families because it can also be driven to the castle.

    The castle Hohenbaden (when founding Hohenbaden Castle, today Altes Schloss) in Baden-Baden was the seat of the Margrave of Baden in the Middle Ages. They named themselves after the castle, which became the namesake of the country Baden.

    A really, great ruin. Currently (Nov 2018) she is currently building something. Still very nice. Invites to stimulate the imagination - how the people lived here then. Where were fireplaces? Where the ground? What was where? :)

    Due to construction work not all levels are to be entered. Judging by the size of the scaffolding, the completion will take some time.

    Unfortunately, the inner part of the castle is currently closed for renovation. But should be completed sometime by the spring of 2019. Then you have again very special views from the different levels on the Rhine valley Baden-Baden Black Forest and the Battert.
