    The Osterburg stands a little in the shadow of the Kreuzberg. Well worth a visit, above you will be rewarded with a fantastic view. Take a snack, tables and benches are sufficiently available.

    Hiking with beautiful views, e.g. on the Kreuzberg. Worth seeing the ruins of the Osterburg.

    Great view of the surrounding area, but not much is left of the castle 🏰 and there are few descriptions, so you don't get a lot of information. But it is a very nice place to linger and have a little picnic.

    The Osterburg, mentioned for the first time in 1200, whose ruin now extends picturesquely on a basalt cone, probably had its origin in a Romanesque fortification. The area, which has several seating options, is also popular as a local recreation destination. The view is lovely!
