    The ruin of Thurant Castle (also Thurandt) stands on a broad spur made of slate high above the village of Alken on the Moselle. It is located in the district of Mayen-Koblenz (Rhineland-Palatinate) and belongs to the type of spur castles. A special feature are - in addition to the location on the steep valley shoulder - the vineyards on the sunny side.From the middle of the 13th century, the archbishoprics of Cologne and Trier were joint owners of the plant and managed their respective share of burgraves. Each half therefore had its own keep, its own residential and farm buildings and a separate entrance.

    Opposite the castle is located directly on the Moselradweg in Alf the inn "beautiful view", which lives up to its name. There you can get on the sun terrace for a little refreshment or even greater refreshment with friendly service and enjoy the beautiful view of the Moselle and the castle Thurand
