The Frankenburg is a natural monument and the ruin of a rock castle in the district of the Southern Wine Route in Rhineland-Palatinate. It was located above the Modenbachtal on a promontory, called Franken Rock, the Frankenberg for the protection of the road opposite the castle Meistersel.
From the Frankenburg only a few remains of walls and traces are present in the rock. The rock lies on the Frankenberg in 545 m height. Vorburg and main castle are separated by a neck trench.

The Frankenberg is at 556 m. Here I am interested in the ruins of the Frankenburg. It is a rock castle high above the Modenbach valley. The staircase is still clearly visible, as well as the rocks of the lower and upper castle. The access road to the castle is interrupted by two ditches and used to be spanned by a bridge.
