Tips

    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.

    When the Franks were landowners in the 6th century, a hunting lodge for the Frankish king is said to have stood there. After the Salzforst became the property of the Würzburg prince bishops, the castle is said to have secured the country against the predatory Fulda prince abbots.

    Around 1200 a Reinhold von der Osterburg was mentioned.

    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!
