Tips

  • Ralf

    The castle Schauenburg, also called New-Schauenburg, is the ruin of a spur castle east of the community Dossenheim in the Rhine-Neckar district in Baden-Württemberg. The remains of the former mountain castle are located at about 275 meters above sea level on the southern foothills of the Mount of Olives.

  • Located on the castle path of the Odenwald Club - a rest here in this ruin is well deserved. You also have a great view of the Rhine valley and especially after can home.

    A great ruin, which has been partially rebuilt over the years.

  • Although it actually hides a little, this castle ruin doesn't really need to. In contrast to its much better known neighbor, the Schriesheimer Strahlenburg two kilometers further north, the Schauenburg cannot be seen clearly from the Rhine plain. Nevertheless, it still offers imposing, massive walls and, above all, a beautiful view of the Rhine plain.

  • Beautiful castle ruins with signs explaining the essentials. For inquisitive children (and those who have stayed) naturally ideal. The bridge is accessible and the area makes a very well-kept impression. Lizards can be seen on the stones in midsummer.
