Tips

  • Martina

    The complex was built in the 13th century by the Count von Rieneck. After their extinction, the castle fell to the Count of Erbach. Wildenstein Castle was abandoned at the end of the 17th century

    A beautiful ruin - unfortunately there is a lot of renovation to be done. But it is nice to look at from a distance.

    From the outside it is nice to look at, unfortunately there are a lot of scaffolding and supports inside. Unfortunately, the tower is locked without a sign at the bottom of the wooden stairs

    The ruins of Wildenstein Castle are mysteriously located in the Spessart and can be reached on foot from the Eschauer Schützenhaus in about 30 minutes on the "Keiler" trail. The complex dates from the 13th century and was built to defend the Rienecker counts against the Electors of Mainz. The castle fell into disrepair after the count family ceased to exist in the 16th century.

    Very nice small castle ruins with a bat cellar (but closed in the winter months). The ruin itself is not too big, but it is very quiet and beautiful and can be built in as a stopover if you want to walk to the moated castle Oberaulenbach + deer park, for example.

    "Renovation" is currently under way, but it looks like it will take a long time

    Wildenstein Castle is the only castle ruin in the inner Spessart that has been largely preserved. It belongs to the hamlet of Wildenstein, a district of Eschau in the Lower Franconian district of Miltenberg in Bavaria.
    She is absolutely recommendable.

    The ruins of the Wildenstein castle, as an old border fortress, bear witness to the centuries-long clashes between the Counts of Rieneck and the Electors of the Palatinate against the Electors of Mainz.

    At the moment, unfortunately, more construction site than sight .. But that too will come to an end at some point. Still nice to look at
