    If you visit the Ahlsburg, you will only find the ruins of the Reichs- und Höhenburg. You can only see the remains of foundations, foundations and the moat. It is believed that it was built in the 12th century, and it was first mentioned in 1357. The lords of the castle were responsible for protecting the Reichsbann forest in the area.

    The mentioned in 1218 Alardus of Burgdorf is associated with the Ahlsburg, especially since its descendants are still mentioned there in the 14th century. The probably built in the 12th century castle was first mentioned in 1357 as an Alerdestein documentary, when Emperor Charles IV Alard d. Ä. and Alard d. J. von Burgdorf with 1 1/2 hooves at Wollingerode entleih, which belong to the Alerdestein. It was part of the Reichsgut and the Royal Palace Werla. In the early modern period, the castle fell into ruin. Their possessions fell to the counts of Stolberg.

    The lords of the castle were responsible for the protection of the surrounding Reichsbannforst.

    Later, the birch pioneer forest passed through the former inner-German border. In addition to a right-hand bend of the former convoy, there is a sign "Ahlsburg" to whose location you can walk uphill from the Ecker for about 100 m.

    Today, only remnants of foundations, foundations and moats are left over from Ahlsburg.

    Sweet little rock castle from the 12th Century. You can climb around a bit in it and has some great views of the Ecker. However, if you go to the end of the castle, so to speak, up the slope, then you suddenly stand on an old gun platform.

    Even if there is no stamp up there, there is still a lot of history to look at.

    Without the informative sign, I wouldn't see any ruins. But it is interesting to be on historical traces.
