Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Directly on the Danube lies the small village of Rechtenstein, between Riedlingen and Munderkingen, east of Zwiefalten and in the southwest is Obermarchtal. Rechtenstein is located on the Danube cycle path and offers some eye-catching!
On the hill is the former castle of Rechtenstein, overlooking the Danube and the Danube valley. This hilltop ruin lies at an altitude of 550 meters (above sea level) and it takes some effort to overcome the difference in altitude, but that's definitely worth it. From the former castle Stain only the tower, so the keep is preserved. This one can visit, but the area is partly privately owned.
Inside the tower, the only building in the ruin of Rechtenstein to be visited, you can take a look at the former castle through panels and visual objects and of course a sensational view over the Danube valley in Upper Swabia. Other relics from the Middle Ages can be found on the walls of the surrounding, private buildings.Address of the castle ruin Rechtenstein Burg Rechtenstein
