Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The castle Wartenfels dates back to 1259. Since then she changed hands several times until she was conquered and burnt down in the peasant wars. Then the castle owners lived only sporadically on the makeshift restored castle. Since the end of the 16th century, the castle is uninhabited and decayed over time.

    Restoration work did not take place until the 1980s. Today you can visit the ruins and take a look over the wall to the surrounding landscape.

    Great view if you do not want to go to the Schober.

    A round table with view destinations facilitates orientation.
    Ideal vantage point for families with small children who do not want to climb the Schober.

    Relic from bygone times. This castle was once the border of two kingdoms and an outpost. Very interesting story that can be read on the spot.
