    The Hohenstaufen castle ruin Altwied stands on a narrow ridge, which is surrounded on three sides by the Wied. The plant was never contested, conquered or even destroyed during its existence. Until the 17th century, it was still inhabited and only then fell into decay.

    There are two accesses to the castle. Once the original one; It leads over the Schloßweg in the old center, through the outer bailey with two gateways up to the upper castle. Or you take the stairs at the mini golf course and then comes through a (barred and locked) gate in the former residential tower directly in the upper castle. In the upper castle are still the towering ruins of the Palas and the dating from the 13th Century women's house to recognize the re-exposed wells and the complete enclosure wall with towers.

    Unfortunately, the ruin is currently closed due to construction work. It still looks great from below.

    From the gate in the former residential tower you can see and above all hear the Wied barrage.

    The Hohenstaufen castle ruins of Altwied stand on a narrow rock ridge around which the Wied flows on three sides. During its existence, the facility was never contested, conquered or even destroyed. It was still inhabited until the 17th century and only fell into disrepair after that.

    There are two entrances to the castle. Once the original; it leads over the Schloßweg in the old town center, through the outer bailey with two gates up to the upper bailey. Or you take the stairs at the mini golf course and then come through a (barred and locked) gate in the former residential tower directly into the upper castle. In the upper castle, the towering ruins of the palace and the women's shelter from the 13th century, the re-exposed fountain and the complete surrounding wall with defensive turrets can still be seen.
