    A visit to the castle ruin Lützelhardt is an absolute must for visitors of this holiday region. Beautiful, well-preserved area with a nice hiking pavilion as a resting place.

    Originally the construction of the securing of the pass road into the Kinzigtal should have served. The southern Ortenau came from the 11th century increasingly in the sphere of influence of the Zähringer. In the early 12th century, the construction of the castle is likely to decline. She was probably managed by a Zähringer Ministerialen sex. However, there are only a few written records. In the course of disputes between the Staufen and the bishops of Strasbourg, the castle was probably destroyed in 1235 by the neighboring Geroldseckern, who belonged to the episcopal party. Then they took over the securing of the pass road on the newly built castle Hohengeroldseck.

    Quaint ruin, which one reaches after a brisk hour march from 200 to 450 m. If you are looking for peace, you will find it here!

    The pavilion is an idyllic resting place and also offered us protection from rain. A welcome break opportunity on the quality route Hohengeroldseck stage north.
