Tips

    Nice rest area from which you can enjoy a great view of the Neuerburg. It is the ruin of a hilltop castle near the Niederbreitbach community, which Ludwig II of Thuringia had built around 1170. It is of course no longer preserved in all its original splendor, but it is still great to look at!

    Neuerburg is the ruin of a hilltop castle near the municipality of Niederbreitbach in the Neuwied district in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate.
    Ludwig II of Thuringia had the Neuerburg built around 1170 (1160 to 1180). It is a kind of prototype of a Staufer castle.
    Only the pentagonal keep (a prototype of castle architecture at the time) with three preserved floors, the circular wall (wall technology from the late 12th century) and the outer bailey (around 1300) have survived.
    Today the castle is still owned by the Neuwied prince dynasty, but leased by a private person from Niederbreitbach, who are now in the second generation and see it as a life's work to renovate the castle and protect it from further deterioration.
    The castle is not accessible to hikers and those interested, an outside tour is possible.

    The heights of the Wiedtal allow a breathtaking view of the valley in many places
