    Over the years, nature regains its space if you let it.

    The castle ruin is well-attended. The tree is incomparable, one must have seen.

    A very beautiful and strangely grown old linden. The witch tree is also a popular photo opportunity. In a bit of fog, this place looks almost mystical.

    A beautifully reconstructed castle ruin. The main and outer bailey were repaired by donations and the outer bailey can be conquered via a built-in steel staircase. Above you will be rewarded by a wonderful foreshortening in the Harz foreland.

    The tree was undermined during excavation work over 100 years ago as it grew on the gateway. A terrific sight. You have to see it in nature.

    Interesting ruins in the middle of the forest. Absolutely also the witches tree on Torweg view. In fog, the terrain looks almost mystical ... just great!

    Here is a special place of power. Mostly, altar stones were built directly over places of power.

    Above the doorway there is also a nice place for a rest. Not covered, but in the middle of the castle - so to speak.
