    From here you have a beautiful view of the Mosel and Kobern.
    At night, the castle ruin is also illuminated.

    The ruins of Niederburg, directly above Kobern-Gondorf, can be reached via various routes. An interesting ascent from the Mühlental valley through the vineyard and over a ladder on the castle wall in the ruins.

    On an elongated mountain spur above the Mosel valley rises the ruins of the Niederburg Kobern. First mentioned in 1195, it was inhabited by Kurtrier officials until the 16th century. Since its destruction by the French in 1688, it is a ruin. In the courtyard is still the well-preserved keep with a very rare trapezoidal floor plan.

    A narrow footpath leads from the Mühlbach valley directly to the Niederburg

    The ascent is unproblematic and recommended for experienced hikers with sure-footedness. For children accompanied by parents, the ladder over the castle wall is an experience.

    A great climbing party!
    (for experienced hikers, a good head for heights and surefootedness required)

    Built in 1190 by the imperial knight Gerlach I of Cobern-Isenburg. The Niederburg with several ring systems was built without the permission of Archbishop Johann von Trier. This resulted in a feud lasting 2 years (1193-1195), but during this time the castle was only besieged and could not be captured. However, Gerlach I became a captive and became a henchman of the Archbishop of Trier. At the latest 1688 the castle was destroyed in the Pfälzischen war. No management, but over the Stations of the Cross, the chapel St. Matthias is very easy to reach and there is taken care of the physical well.

    Beautiful castle ruins. Once conquered, the eon offers fantastic views over the Mosel and Kobern-Gondorf.

    Unfortunately the sign has not been available for some time. Downstairs is a small parking lot for maybe 5-7 vehicles. From there it goes directly between the vineyards up to the castle.

    A real castle ruin. You can rest on the walls and let your eyes wander over the Mosel valley ..

    A very nice ruin that is obviously preserved. I love these ruins, whose walls and grounds are so wonderful to explore and take you back in time. Since you have to make a small detour from the dream path (approx. 100 m), it is not overcrowded ... Very nice!

    You should be sure-footed and have a head for heights.
