Tips

  • Hunsbuckel

    The hamlet Kastel of the municipality Kastel-Staadt lies on a Buntsandstein tableau, which was already used by Celts and later the Romans as a settlement and above all as a place of worship.
    Evidence of this is still the great Roman theater, the foundations of which can still be seen today in a cubic reconstruction.
    The central point is the hermitage, which has been extended several times since the 13th century on the Klausen rock, first as a church cut into the rock, later as a multi-storey, Italian building by Karl Friedrich Schinkel.
    The Klausen-Anlage can be visited daily against entrance from 10 o'clock. In the complex there are several paths and viewpoints.
    Freely accessible are the church of John the Baptist and the military cemetery with the best views of the Hermitage and the Saar Valley. Hidden behind the church, the Elisenblick offers another opportunity for rest and sightseeing.
