    From the castle Alsenborn is barely more to see in the area than a reconstruction of recent times, which has little to do with the outline of the original Sali-Hohenstaufen plant (in the system of the swimming pool, the hill was planned and long time only remembered a memorial stone to the castle site). Excavations in 1935 and most recently in 1965/66 showed the image of a Salierzeitlichen, originally built in timber construction tower hill castle with a 50 m wide and 3 m high hill with circular terrain recess in the eastern area, in the Hohenstaufen epoch by a tower with about 9.50 m × 9.50 m floor area and approximately 2.50 m wall thickness was developed in Buckelquaderbauweise and a rounded polygonal ring wall with about 30 m in diameter and 1.50 m thickness. In the western part was a Vorwerk of about 20 m long and 5 m wide with 2 recognizable rooms. Around the castle was a 12 m wide water-filled trench, which is still recognizable in the area in the northern and eastern areas. In the southeastern area is a Vorburg suspected of a 3 m wide ditch (in the area still detectable) was surrounded. About nature and appearance of this bailey can not say anything due to overbuilding and field work.
