    For really worthwhile 2 EUR you get access to the whole area of the castle and you can also see more of the ruin. However, the highlight is the castle tower. From the top you can see the city and a large part of the valley. The view is really fantastic and the tower is also walkable at night, albeit sparsely lit.

    Once the seat of the Counts of Wertheim, the original Hohenstaufen castle complex from the 12th century belongs to the largest and most beautiful castle ruins in Germany. In 1619 it was partially destroyed by a powder explosion and heavily shot at during the Thirty Years' War. Today, the castle is owned by the city Wertheim and a popular destination. From the keep, one can enjoy the view of the river landscapes of Main and Tauber and is within reach of the spits of the Spessart and the Odenwald.

    Even as a ruin still imposing. Nice view over Wertheim and the Tauber valley, as well as the Main valley. Admission to the inner part of the castle costs € 2.00 for adults

    Entry to the castle costs 2 € per person. Small change can be exchanged at a change machine. Access is via payment via a turnstile.
    A visit to the castle is well worth it. Especially in good weather you have a wonderful view of the old town Wertheim and the river Main.

    A very beautiful, impressive castle ruin! The entry (at the machine) for the indoor area only costs € 2, a very fair price (which you should definitely pay).
