    Not much is left of the castle. Only a small remnant of the wall, a few mounds of rubble from the dilapidated buildings and the moat remind us that a castle once stood here.
    A climb is worth it because of the magnificent view of the valley and the surrounding rocks!

    Really great view, even if there is not much left of the donkey castle.

    The ascent is definitely worth it, as the view from the top is very beautiful. The path through the moat is also very rustic.

    The castle rock with the remains of the wall of the donkey castle, which was the seat of the knight family "Von Esel" in the 13th and 14th centuries, rises above the tranquil village of Eselsburg.

    Here was the donkey castle that gave the valley its name. Unfortunately, only a few remains of the wall are left. But the view from up here is fantastic!

    Almost nothing can be seen of the ruins. But the view from up there is terrific!
