    The castle was probably built around 1152 by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa to protect the imperial land and to secure the Hohenstaufen family estate. The castle was destroyed in the 30-year war. Part of the castle is today a country school home.

    Visually no highlight, but you can rent them for youth camps ... that is definitely a highlight

    Old walls that you pass on the route, but are a bit inconspicuous. But quite ok, since you come by anyway ...

    Castle was not a highlight now, but the way to the gorge is completely adventurous

    Everything left in its natural state, thus good air. Here you can discover plants that are allowed to grow naturally. The Palatinate Forest is the largest contiguous forest area in Germany.

    Unfortunately, we could only look at the castle from the outside. It was just a summer camp there.

    The stone Wilenstein Castle rises up between the trees as if from a film. What looks like a ruin inside offers a large adventure playground for children and young people, because today there is a school camp here. Part of the castle was restored for this. Everyone would definitely like to play knight one day: burgwilenstein.de.

    An example of how historical buildings that are in danger of decay can be preserved through meaningful use: A school camp has been built here, which will hopefully be used, e.g. for history lessons!
