Bike Touring Highlight
Nice view of the Veste Otzberg.
The area around the Otzberg probably belonged to the territory that King Pippin gave to the Fulda monastery in 766 together with Groß-Umstadt.The fortress Otzberg was probably built at the end of the 12th and beginning of the 13th century. At this time, the abbot Marquard I von Fulda secured the monastery property and built castles that can be seen from afar as a sign of his influence.
