    The Hinterburg and especially the Hinterturm are well-known landmarks of the East Hessian «Burgenstadt» slot in the Vogelsberg. The castle dates back to the 15th century and is a Renaissance style building with magnificent gables. The 36 meter high back tower dates back to the 14th century. It is now accessible as an observation tower, an elevator brings you upstairs. In the run-up to Christmas he is wrapped in a red cloak and decorated with lights to the monumental Christmas candle.

    From the back tower worth a look on each case a look down on the castle city slit. Very nice view of the city and surroundings.
