    The rock castle is unfortunately not accessible, but can be seen clearly from the opposite street.
    "... a monument of gray antiquity, the ruins of which the ravages of time gnaw more and more ruinous ... In 909 the Hungarians invaded Thuringia devastatingly and Duke Burkhard is said to have fought them in a battle near Eisenach. Initially, the rock castle served as an apartment to protect themselves from the Hungarians' thirst for blood ... "(Lit .: Karl Grübner, 1820, archive of the ThULB)

    On the way to Buchfart, the rock walls look so far away, but that is deceptive and worth marching over

    At the moment, you can not climb the rock castle completely, but it's worth it until it closes

    The GoethewanderWeg runs past the caves, Goethe recognized the specialty of this historic rock castle - the only one of its kind in Thuringia - and repeatedly emphasized it during his visits to Buchfart.
    “Do you know the castle, dug in the mountainous rock, which towers up from the valley to the sky? Waves that wash around her feet - the shepherd chooses the battlements for pasture for his sheep. "
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote his friend, the cantor and organist Friedrich Heinrich Schütz in Bad Berka in the register.

    The complex consisted of about twelve chambers and corridors, which have extended up to 40 meters above the valley floor. The former access situation and the outer walls can no longer be reconstructed. The castle was in its heyday the best possible protection against attackers, on the other hand, the living conditions within the castle were certainly extreme (Wikipedia).
