The Weidelsburg was one of the most important castles in the Landgraviate of Hesse in the late Middle Ages. You reach the imposing castle ruins via a narrow serpentine path. In the gigantic east tower you can reach the viewing platform via a staircase and enjoy the magnificent panorama from there. There is also a small kiosk here with a hoisted flag showing when it is open. Mostly this is on Sundays and public holidays.

The Weidelsburg is a very interesting and well-preserved building. You should definitely go to the east tower, from there you have a wonderful panoramic view of northern Hesse in all directions. The plateau is well secured and feasible even for those who fear heights.
