    The Stolzenburg is the ruins of a hilltop castle in the Urft valley between the towns of Sötenich and Urft in the municipality of Kall in the North Rhine-Westphalian district of Euskirchen.
    The Roman Eifel water pipe passed at the foot of the castle. The Roman Canal hiking trail also passes the castle. Ceramic finds only point to the settlement of the living space in the Middle Ages.

    The ruin of the legendary Stolzenburg only got its name afterwards because of its location high up on a rock wall that suddenly drops into the valley of the Urft at a height of 450 meters above sea level.
    However, knowledge of the history of the castle is rather sparse. The ruin with a few remains of the wall suggests scientific research to a medieval castle, which may have been the seat of the von Sotenich family.
    Remains of an encircling ring wall adapted to the shape of the rock cone, wall gates and floor plans of living rooms are still visible. The country side of the castle was protected by a rampart and a moat. The steep edges to the Urft valley gave the castle natural protection, so that no wall was necessary here.

    The ascent is rewarded with a beautiful view of the Uftttal and the heights along the Gillesbach and Kuttenbach valleys.

    A very nice view, caves, barren rocks, a bench to rest and an idyllic, albeit steep, but very beautiful way up from the road.

    The Eifel-Blick Stolzenburg is located in the immediate vicinity of the sparse remains of the former Stolzenburg. At an altitude of 450 m above sea level you have a beautiful view of the mountain ranges of the Eifel around the Steinfeld monastery.

    The ruins of a hilltop castle. It's a shame that the castle no longer exists. The area around the castle is a nature reserve (nature reserve "Auen und Hänge an Urft und Gillesbach").

    Beautiful rock formation! As a layman, you can no longer recognize a castle from it, but it is still worth seeing
