    Built in the 11th century as a castle with a castle, a nucleus, a shield wall, a kennel and a moat, a 16th-century prison and a protective fortress during the Thirty Years' War. Today ideal for a snack break with a view!

    The castle, which was built on a rock spur, was protected against attacks from the plateau by two ditches and a high shield wall.

    Interesting ruin with magnificent views of the Ermstal. Worth a visit in every season.

    Nice view from the castle into the valley.
    There are 1-2 small information boards on the history of the castle and enough space to picnic

    Great ruin with a moving history.
    The view from the tower is great!
    And the geocachers will also get their money's worth.

    Great view. In winter, some paths are difficult to commit (smooth, slippery). Stoeckers help significantly here.

    It is a beautiful ruin, only a pity that there are made wild fires that destroy the whole picture

    I've been down at least 50 times and thought there I have to go. Now I finally made it. That was worth it. You can combine the ruins with beautiful other highlights to a great round. 🙂

    a detour to the ruin is worth it alone because of the great view
