    It is a still well-preserved castle ruins. The view from the upper wall remains in the landscape is great. The associated restaurant is pleased about your visit and invites you to coffee with a beautiful view. About 1.5 km away is the Unicorn Cave, which is also worth a visit.

    An adventure playground. After looking, watching and exploring, enjoy the rest in the restaurant.

    From the castle Scharzfels is not much preserved. But the documentation on the 13 blue information boards is even better. With their help, it is possible to create a picture of the former plant in mind.

    A great tour with opportunities to stay. The unicorn cave can even be visited. I believe in hourly tours.

    The view from the castle ruin is just beautiful.

    The remains of the former Scharzfels Castle lie on a dolomitic rock towering about 150 m above the Odra valley near the village of Barbis.

    The circular walk around the ruin is interesting, but just in case of rainy weather with caution

    There is a stamp for the Harzer hiking pin and something cool to drink and in addition a nice view of an old ruin.

    A little tip for dog lovers. Dogs are not allowed into the Unicorn Cave, but it is offered the opportunity to lock the dog in a small, separated piece of garden for the duration of the tour. So I was able to take the lead and thank the people from the operator club for that.
