Mountain Biking Highlight
The castle was probably founded in 1195. The keep and shield wall date from this period. In 1499 the outer bailey was built and the keep was raised.
A visit to the castle can be combined with a short hike that leads up the cattle path ... or directly from the town hall via steps. The path has 367 steps.
The castle festival has been staged at the castle every two years since 1987.

The first work on the hilltop castle began in 1197, when Bishop Heinrich III. von Berg had a residential tower built. Under the Würzburg bishop Konrad I of Querfurt there was a second construction phase, but on a smaller scale.
