    End of October 2016: The castle ruin is again open to walk! Yippee!

    An adventurous-looking wooden staircase leads to the upper castle. From there you have a really wonderful panoramic view. Today over a Palatinate Forest shining in sunlight in the most wonderful autumn colors.

    If you would like to know more about the castle, we recommend this humorous video by Norbert Heugel, a Palatine veteran, who has probably set out to explore all Palatine castles and castle ruins and to document this in his videos. Have fun watching.

    very beautiful rock castle with an adventurous ascent. Unfortunately, at the time of the hike the castle was not accessible due to renovations.

    July 2017: The castle ruin is still open ;-)
    The highlight for me was the ascent via the externally attached wooden staircase. But do not worry: nothing wobbles.

    After climbing the adventurous wooden staircase, there is a fantastic panoramic view of the Falkenburg. The rest of the way is very nice.

    The most interesting thing about the castle is the outside wooden staircase over which you can get up and the beautiful Blich you have all around!
