    Ruin Rauber is exactly what you would imagine a ruined castle to be: Something hidden in the forest, already partially recaptured by nature, but enough masonry is still visible to get an idea of the former castle. With access over a wooden bridge.
    So who can not go back in time to the robber knights ...;)

    The ruin Diepoldsburg is a double castle, which consists of the Upper Diepoldsburg and the Lower Diepoldsburg, also called castle Rauber.

    The castle is said to have been built by the Knights of Diepholdsburg around 1210, a "Ulrich de Diepoltsburc" is mentioned in 1215 as the owner. The castle collapsed in the 16th century and the surrounding walls were restored from 1964 to 1965. The castle got its second name Rauber because of its use as a robber baron castle.

    Castle ruin Rauber
    The ruin was built around 1210 by the knights from Diepholdsburg. Therefore, "ruin Diepholdsburg" is the real name of the castle ruins. The name "Rauber" she received because of their use as Raubritterburg. It is located at an altitude of 720m above sea level.

    You can walk through the main entrance into the small castle ruin and leave through the back door. Use the small trail in the south to walk around the castle and you‘re back on track.

    On top of the ridge, just a bridge from the protruding eaves, you will find the picturesque Rauber ruin. Half in the shade of old beeches, half in the sun, it delights you with a pretty inner courtyard that offers views to the east. Where the Breitenstein turns its rock faces into the wind and the Limburg cone shines in the light.
    There is seating in the middle of the castle. Could there be a nicer place to take a break? Barely! Unless you use the meadow on the other side of the bridge. A barbecue area is available, as well as a few benches.

    Great old castle ruins. One wonders how such a castle could be built on these heights.
