    Grimmenstein Castle is the most famous sight in the town of the same name. The building consists of a so-called hill castle on the rock and a hill castle below. The name of the castle dates from the 12th century, but its foundations and parts of the masonry are much older. Some sources refer to a much older history of the castle, so part of the preserved keep goes back to an approximately 2,000 year old Roman watchtower. After years of decline it has been extensively renovated by the Grimmenstein family since 2014. From the castle car park, you can walk to the castle in around 35-50 minutes on the well-signposted hiking trail.
