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 ...;)
