    Just great here. A visit to the medieval castle Blankenstein is recommended. There is also a restaurant where you can relax. Fantastic view from the castle Blankenstein over the valley.

    "The medieval hill castle was built in the 13th century on the bare" bare stone "by the Counts of the Mark not far from the Ruhr crossing historic trade routes and served in addition to the defense and their control and monitoring.From the first expansion, the castle was completed in the 15th century In the following, however, the complex lost its importance and began to deteriorate - about 200 years after its expansion, it was even threatened with demolition, partly benefiting the house Kemnade and individual houses in the vicinity of building material from the castle Blankenstein A factory for yarn and factory buildings was erected in the now ruinous facility, which was acquired by the city of Bochum in 1922. It was renovated in the 1970s and today it is home to a castle restaurant. " Source: ruhrgebiet-industriekultur.de/blankenstein.html

    The castle is a real sight. The tower in particular offers a fantastic all-round view. The stairs up are neatly dark, very steep and appealingly challenging. Wonderful if you are up here alone and can enjoy the view in peace.

    High above the Ruhr towers the castle Blankenstein. From here she once ruled the Ruhr valley. The old fortress from the 13th century is now a popular destination. The keep offers the visitor a fantastic view over the Ruhr.

    Blankenstein Castle is pleasantly accessible for hikers. The tower is also freely accessible and can be climbed via steep, very dark, demanding stairs. The magnificent all-round view is definitely worth it.

    The castle tower and the inner courtyard as well as the remains are in very good shape. Looks almost like new.
