    On a rock 90 meters above the Danube stands the broken Gutenstein - at least what is left of the castle. The name Bruches Gutenstein comes from the fact that the building has been a ruin for 500 years. The original name was Neugutenstein. The ruin is freely accessible and offers you a magnificent view of the Danube valley.

    The castle was originally called Neugutenstein, later called Niedergutenstein. Since its disintegration, the name "broken gutter stone" has prevailed for the plant.

    The ruin stands on a spur at the confluence of the Schmeie in the Danube between Inzigkofen and Gutenstein.
    The Felsenburg consisted of the Kernburg lying on an isolated rock and a farmyard lying on the adjacent area. On the approximately triangular core castle was the residential tower, from which two-storey remains of the walls were preserved. The lower castle was located in the shelter of a rock overhang. From her only small remnants of the wall remained.

    Here you can see the beautiful valley - a few meters away, the rest of a castle tower perched on the steep cliff.

    The ruins of the broken Gutenstein in the Upper Danube Valley is one of the most exposed and difficult to reach castle ruins in the Swabian Alb.

    That is, the core castle on the crag is not accessible at all - unless you are a very good rock climber with adequate climbing equipment. However, the rock is not released for climbing.
    So it's best just to look at it, from Panoramafelsweg.

    Great vantage point over the Danube valley. The castle ruins are very difficult and can only be reached with climbing experience.

    Unbelievable: It is unimaginable to build up a castle on so little rock surface.

    It takes your breath away, if you look - from whatever side - at the rock needle with the remains of the ruins of "Broken Gutenstein". Already mentioned in the 12th century, it was only mentioned in the 14th century as a stable. Wonderful that these remains, exposed on the impressive rock, can still be admired.

    How did people in the past build a castle like this on this rock? Amazing.
