    Saaleck Castle is the older of the two castles. It was built around 1050 as a border castle to protect a trade route. It has been uninhabited and derelict since 1585.

    Little sister of Rudelsburg. Accessible via a 700m long dirt road.

    A very nice destination even if the climb was very sweaty with the bike.

    The castle lies on a roof-shaped, west-projecting Muschelkalkrücken immediately south of the village Saaleck to about 172 m above sea level. NN. The characteristic image of the castle is formed by the two widely visible circular keeps, whose wall thickness is about two meters and each of almost 23 meters high (Wikipedia).

    From the castle you have a magnificent view of the Saale valley.

    The castle complex is worth seeing, but the approach is easier.
