    Good view over the Rhine ditch and in clear weather you should be able to see in the Swiss Jura.

    Castle Neuenfels. The view from up here compensates for every drop of sweat that was shed during the ascent!

    Neuenfels castle ruins (595 m) From the viewing platform of the Neuenfels ruins, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the foothills, the Rhine valley, the Kaiserstuhl and the Vosges. Neuenfels Castle was built in 1250 and was the seat and property of the "Von Neuenfels" knight family until the 16th century. In 1538 the last knight sold his property for lack of money, but kept the castle. However, the knightly family suffered a terrible fate: in 1540, it is mentioned in a camp book, the knight, his wife, daughter and the rest of the servants were murdered. The killer was never found. The castle then fell into disrepair. An information board quotes the extract from the stock book.

    The ruin of the Spornburg lies on a mountain spur 595.1 meters above sea level in the immediate vicinity of Badenweiler, but on the district of the Britzingen district of Müllheim. The castle is at the western end of the mountain spur. The castle was protected on three sides (north, west and south) by steep slopes. Access to the east was hampered by a deep trench.
