    The Wysburg is said to have belonged to the destroyed by King Rudolf of Habsburg 1289/90 robberies. From 1985 until today excavated castle ruins consisting of core castle and outer castle with encircling wall trench system with a total of 1.1 hectares. Here, the archaeological evidence of the castle siege with a built in 380m Blide Blide can be provided. The bombardment was mainly on the Western Wall, it was the weak point of the defense. The castle is now cared for by a castle association.
