    Buildings = Danger of collapse, mortal danger !!!!Castle Schülzburg is located on a mountain spur, above the small, tranquil village Anhausen and can be seen from afar when driving through the Lautertal. The facility is privately owned and collapse risk. She can not be visited.
    The castle is a classic spur castle, which was later converted into a castle. The spur slopes of the plant are steeply sloping down to the valley. The huge building complex, consisting of four floors, looks very impressive from the location. In addition, it can be seen from the number of windows in the buildings and the stones used that Schülzburg was extended and expanded in different eras.
    From the outer bailey are today only a few foundations existing. It was separated from the core by a moat, the walls of which were bricked. The core castle itself consists of several buildings that house, among other things, bay, Aborte and two old towers, or stair towers. The buildings were accessible from a small courtyard, which was protected by a kennel to the south. Access was via a bridge that led over the neck trench into the courtyard. The castle, which was later built in the castle, today only consists of the four outer walls, which have been preserved up to the roof gable. Even the stair tower are still existing and some have stairs. In the castle, in addition to the numerous windows, the foundations of the lowest floor can still be seen. Allegedly there still exist cellar vaults, as well as their entrances.

    West of the castle was the Palas. From the valley you can see the much thicker walls. In contrast to the castle, the Palas makes a solid and defensive impression, according to its construction time. He has no ornaments and shines in the Spartan splendor of medieval architecture. Its interior still has bar holes, which indicate the distribution of the floors. Palas and castle were connected by the castle courtyard, which housed a well. It was framed by a defensive wall with 15m high static arches for reinforcement. In one part of the yard was the kitchen.
    Castle Schülzburg is in danger of collapse and both castle and surroundings are privately owned. You can see the resort only from the valley, which gives little information about the interior.
