    From the former Schwabsburg today only one free-standing tower is preserved. This consists of massive humpbacks and was once the keep of the plant. Located on a Roman road leading to Mommenheim, it once served to protect and maintain the Staufer in and around Nierstein and Oppenheim. Who built the castle is unknown, however, a connection to the construction of the castle Landskron is suspected in Oppenheim, which suggests a date of origin between 1125 and 1245. The destruction of these buildings took place in 1620 in the 30 year war by the hand of the Spaniards. Although there are no other remnants of the plant, however, in old sources of a dining room, a ring wall and various residential and commercial buildings reported. 🚴♂️

    The ruin has already been aptly described. I can still complete: good road to Mommenheim, from there you can on a great bike path on to Bodenheim or Selzen. In the other direction, it goes down to Nierstein, also great to drive. Third direction is then over the mountain to Oppenheim. Schwabsburg is a great village to look and continue from here in all directions.
