  • PeterStar

    The Isenburg in Hattingen, called in old documents castle Isenberg, was built for Arnold von Altena (1173-1209) on the Isenberg west of the city in the years 1193-1199. Destroyed in 1225, the Spornburg castle today is a ruin on a steep rocky spur above the Hattinger Ruhrschleife. Within the ruins is the 19th century country house Custodis.
    Beautiful view of the Ruhr valley and the Ruhrschleife.

    The Isenburg is an old castle complex, where many foundations can be seen. The bike path is guided through the facility. You can also push the wheel well over the iron bridges. The highlight is especially worthwhile because of the spectacular view of the Ruhr.

    High above the Ruhr on a mountain spur and visible from a distance is the ruins of Isenberg or Isenburg.
    The Isenburg in Hattingen, was built for Arnold von Altena on the Isenberg west of the city in the years 1193-1199. Destroyed in 1225, the Spornburg castle today is a ruin on a steep rocky spur above the Hattinger Ruhrschleife.
    Especially now in the quiet season worth a visit to the Isenberg. On the one hand, it is not too crowded and on the other hand, in some places of the lower and upper castle and from the jetty next to the house Custodis beautiful views of the about 100 meters lower lying Ruhr Valley direction Hattingen and Bochum.

    The view from Isenburg in the eastern course of the Ruhr is depending on the time of day and year
    Section completely different ... sometimes the river is gray, sometimes blue or brown.

    Great view .... From the castle is not much preserved. But the story of the castle is very exciting.
