    Built in 1290 by Philipp I von Nassau-Weilburg, restored from 1976.
    Nice view of the Solmsbach valley from up there.

    The tour made by me tour of Brandoberndorf has up to the last 6 km no MTB routes. Dirt roads can also be mastered with the touring bike. However, there are long, steep climbs, z. B. from Weilmünster in the forest. But from the so-called Dreiherrenstein, a rather neglected seating in the forest, it looks different. There were already quite a few leaves on the ground; I could not recognize a path; there was probably little traffic on these paths; so I drove outside. At the Dreiherrenstein, a dam began below the low-hanging branches that ended about 200 m further in the forest. I also could not see a path here and stopped the tour at this point. Of the many tours that I have done by Komoot, this was a bit disappointing. The distant view in the area of ​​castle Philippstein is very nice.

    Coming from Philippstein nice climb to the castle. But it's worth it!! Magnificent view and special perspective of Braunfels Castle

    Castles and ruins always fascinate. Not as in focus as Braunfels, which is in sight, but worthwhile. Nice little trail from the castle to the village.
