    Impressive main tower and great location above the village of Grenzau. Pay attention to opening times otherwise you stand in front of a locked door

    Nice view of the castle and a part of Grenzau. Even more beautiful is the view of Grenzau at the top of the castle itself.

    Here is a castle that is unique in Germany: it has a triangular castle tower.

    Today's Grenzau district goes back to the castle of the same name, in whose castle peace it was located together with Kammerforst. A document from 1338 speaks of a house and a bailey at Grenzau Castle. It was probably the core of the village of Grenzau. This was granted city rights under the Frankfurt law by Baldwin of Luxembourg in 1346, but these were never used. Even after the castle was no longer used, the castle peace district remained, so that the inhabitants of Grenzau were still free from frondervices in 1756. At times the place seems to have been closely connected to Kammerforst. In 1723 Grenzau and Kammerforst were mentioned as a common municipality, in 1813 a common mayor was mentioned for both. In 1775, however, Kammerforst had its own mayor.
