    From the tower you have a good view of the area, the Niederburg and the Liesertal.

    The upper castle of Manderscheid, also called Obermanderscheid, is the smaller and poorer preserved castle of the Manderscheider castle group. For centuries it belonged to the archdiocese of Trier, which was constantly in conflict with the lords of Manderscheid, who lived at the castle Niedermanderscheid. To this day, some outer walls and the mighty keep have been preserved, which is a rarity with its diamond-shaped floor plan. A visit in connection with the castle Niedermanderscheid is worthwhile!

    The upper castle is the older of the two castles in Manderscheid.
    Originally it was in Luxembourg possession and Oberburg 1147 went to the archbishopric of Trier.
    After that she remained in the possession of the Trier until the dissolution of the state and its destruction by the French (1673).
    Today, the restored castle forms an impressive backdrop for the castle festival with chivalrous games that takes place every year on the last weekend in August.

    Nice view of the Niederburg. Ascent to the tower possible. Otherwise, unfortunately, not as preserved as in the Niederburg.

    The upper castle offers a great view of the lower castle. Especially worthwhile in the evening at dusk, as the Niederburg and the BurgCafé are nicely lit.
