    Egloffstein Castle - picturesquely situated on a rocky outcrop above the Trubach Valley and ancestral seat of the Barons von und zu Egloffstein since the 11th century - is one of the landmarks of romantic Franconian Switzerland and is located in the middle of one of the most diverse and attractive recreational areas in Germany. (

    It is a pity that without a guide you can see relatively little and there is no real vantage point into the valley. Only the St. Bartholomew Church from 1752, which is integrated into the castle, can be visited. You should therefore think twice about whether you really want to see the castle up close or whether the imposing picture from below is not enough.
