The castle is located at 380 m above sea level. NHN. The facility stands on a hill made of tuff to the left (west) of the Ahbach. Little is known about the history of the castle from written sources. Nothing is known about the appearance of the original castle complex. The remnants of the Dreimühlen house, which are only small today, essentially consist of a quarry stone wall that still towers a few meters. The facility is neither inhabited nor managed and is freely accessible at all times. Due to the poor state of preservation, a visit is actually only worthwhile in connection with the neighboring Dreimühlen waterfall, which was named after the ruin, or for real castle enthusiasts. Through the Ahbach valley in the immediate vicinity of the ruin, marked hiking trails lead, among other things, the Geo- Hillesheim path and the Eifel crime thriller hiking trail. Furthermore, the Kalkeifel cycle path and the mineral spring route (with a connection to the Ahr cycle path in the north) run as sections of a cycle network.
