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.
