    Very little is known about the history of Hellkirch. The architecture - 1.5 m thick walls, inner side length 4.5 m, square space - suggests an old age. It was probably a religious room, probably a chapel. The name probably derives from the Middle High German hero, which called a hill with a steep slope; In terms of dialect, "Hell" is still used until the 20th century as a term for steeply sloping mountain slopes. Other assumptions bring the ruins with the approximately 4 km downstream Schmidtburg in conjunction. The deserted village of Kaffeld lies above, the Wüstung Blickersau below the Hellkirch in the Hahnenbachtal. (Wikipedia)

    A very beautiful ruin in a great location that invites you to take a break. A bank set and a panoramic lounger invite you to linger.

    For me, thank God I'm not the only one, one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the region. Many surprises can be found, this place is one of them, the walls are massive and defiant and also fascinate with a wonderful view.

    Part of a beautiful dream bow that rightly bears its name. Fascinating ruin, the impressive walls are striking.
