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.
