    Old walls always have something fascinating. Be considerate of the residents.

    A very nice ancient castle. This is very well accessible from Wenden or Friesenhagen.

    Wildenburg Castle is a smaller castle building in Wildenburger Land in the northern part of the Altenkirchen district near Friesenhagen above the small castle settlement Wildenburg on the street in the valley, Friesenhagen via Wildenburg with the former station of the same name on the closed and now dismantled railway line Finnentrop – Freudenberg connects.The term “Wildenburger Land” has been mentioned in local history books since the beginning of the 15th century. At that time, the owner of this estate was Gerhard von Wildenburg. The property was managed from Wildenburg Castle, which is today known as “Wildenburg Castle”.The Wildenburg is the ancestral seat of the Lords of Wildenburg, who in the early 13th century, as Lords of Aremberg, were bailiffs in the area. They built the castle after which they named themselves in 1239. The last lord of Wildenburg, Hermann von Wildenburg, died in 1418. His nephews, the sons of his sister Jutta, who had been married to Johann von Hatzfeldt since 1387, took possession of Wildenburg as heirs. The von Hatzfeldt family has been in the possession of the castle since then; In 1806 the Wildenburger Land fell to the Grand Duchy of Berg, in 1815 to Prussia and in 1946 to Rhineland-Palatinate. From 1808 to 1815 the Wildenburg was the seat of a cantonal administration in the department of Sieg before being abandoned and decaying in the middle of the 19th centuryFurther information: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burg_Wildenburg_(Wildenburger_Land)
