    Schwabsburg is a tranquil district of Nierstein.

    The 106 steps up to the tower are worthwhile.

    Unfortunately, the tower is not always open.
    Otherwise, a great view to the Odenwald.

    On the way from Schwabsburg to the keep of the castle, there are impressive views of the place. Likewise in the further course of the path towards the Warturm from Nierstein.

    Schwabsburg Castle is the ruin of a hilltop castle on a mountain spur, about 120 m above sea level. NN.
    The Schwabsburg was probably founded around 1210 and was first mentioned in 1257 in a royal document by Richard von Cornwall as the base of the Hohenstaufen rule on the Rhine.
    In the Thirty Years' War the castle was destroyed by an army led by the Spanish general and General Ambrosio Spinola or his successor Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba from spring 1621. The castle was demolished in 1799 after it was auctioned.
    Only the keep and parts of the ring wall are preserved from the former castle complex.
    (Excerpt from de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burg_Schwabsburg)
    Unfortunately the tower was closed due to the Corona crisis.

    Not only does the Schwabsburg tower offer a great view of the small town of the same name ...
    The path through the vineyards also opens up some beautiful valley views 👍🏻

    ... We were very astonished today: The tower was open (03/21) - and the climb is definitely worth it ✌🏻

    The tower was open but not illuminated. The motion detectors did not respond. Thanks to a flashlight and smartphone, we didn't fall down the stairs.
    Jackdaws nest in the tower, and one of them looked in fearfully from outside as we passed the nest inside. Hopefully she calmed down when she found her clutch unmolested.
