The Ruin Rauber is exactly how you would like to imagine such a castle ruin. Tucked away in the forest, already half recaptured by nature, but still enough masonry visible to make a picture of the former castle with access via a wooden bridge.
So who can not move back here in the time of the robber barons ...
