Without the name tag "Räiberschlössle" you almost walk past it. But if you then take the secured path around the rock, it turns out to be hollow: a large space within a rock wreath with individual embrasures that offer extreme views of the Wutach Gorge, and two large trees as sun and weather protection. A really unique place for a rest!

The Räuberschlösschen was once built as Burg Neu Bumegg by the lords of Blumegg. The first mention of the castle can be found in the 14th century. In 1525 it fell victim to the Peasants' War and was destroyed. After being abandoned by the knights of the castle, it became a habitation of evil rabble. This used the castle not only as a shelter, but also as a starting point for numerous raids in the surrounding villages. According to a town sign, the former castle Neu Blumegg has been given its new name by the bustle of this Gesindels. Today only a few remains of the castle are preserved from the castle. Nevertheless, the castle is a very popular hiking destination of the Wutachschlucht, not least because of its beautiful view of the Wutach.
