Tips

  • Witwe Bolte

    Visiting the castle ruins as a landmark of the Franconian Switzerland is a MUST.
    Scenic location above the loop of the Wiesenttal, expansion of the old tower ruin to the lookout tower, complete archaeological investigation with first-class documentation and the securing of the building remains are exemplary.

    The large castle complex consists of three sections separated by deep neck trenches. Already the outer bailey was secured by a trench about 100 meters long, 22 meters wide and about 7 meters deep. The towering high wall behind it was built around 1300th Of the other buildings are only slight footprints available .... Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burgruine_Neideck

    The ruin Neideck is considered a landmark of the Franconian Switzerland. It was first mentioned in documents in 1219 and was inhabited by the key mountainers at that time, until in 1347 Konrad von Schlüsselberg was hit by a siege and defeated in a siege.

    A real highlite not only because of the view. It's also worth it at the end of a tour through the Franconian Switzerland to see again what you have achieved. Or just at the beginning of a tour to see where it's going!

    The castle ruins Neideck is a former high medieval Adelsburg over the village Streitberg, a community part of Wiesenttal in the Upper Franconian district Forchheim in Bavaria. Due to its exposed location high above the valley of the Wiesent she has become a landmark of the Franconian Switzerland.

    The castle ruins are freely accessible, the residential tower serves as a lookout point.
