    If you stand on top of the castle, you do not notice that you are on one. Only coming from the southeast you can still see a high wall on the mountain.

    Wikipedia also knows something about this place:
    The true story, however, can be found here:

    You should keep your eyes open, otherwise you will easily overlook the ruin as it has decayed heavily.

    One of the greatest "Lost Places" in the Taunus! My recommendation: climb through the former moat to the ruins of the castle ....
