    From the plants of the Ringwall castle is likely to be classified in the 8th to 10th century. More details is not known, there are no documentary mentions. There are two theories about the importance of the system.One presumption is that it served as a refuge for the inhabitants of the suspected deserts Nieder- and Oberseelbach. This is indicated by numerous field ranks in the environment. [1]The second theory says that the plant was owned, inter alia, by a knight Rudolf, who was also named after Rudolfswald. This is also unoccupied. Facts that substantiate one of the theories are not known.

    The system is almost circular, with a diameter of the inner wall of about 35 m. Access is provided from the north via a small wooden bridge that bridges the moat. The moat includes the plant completely. To the west, the remains of the outer ramparts are clearly visible. The wall has compared to the surrounding forest floor still a height of about 1.0 m to about 2.5 m, with a width of 7 m to 11 m. The moat, which is fed by two inlets, has a width of approx. 3.0 m. In the northeast, a 50 meter long outer wall is located in front.In the depiction of Karl August von Cohausen remainders of fire debris such as oak and charred clay were found. These findings indicate that a wood-earth fortification has burned down here.
