The heart of the complex is the Kernburg, the Lower Castle, with the rebuilt keep around 1230 and remains of a Romanesque residential building as well as visible at the defensive tower traces of a large Gothic building attached to it. The keep has a nearly square base, each about eight meters in length and a height of almost 30 meters. It is made of shell limestone blocks and has on the south side remains of a Aborterkers. The core castle had to the south once about 2.40 meters strong shield wall, whose approach is still recognizable at the keep, and was moved around 1300 by a preserved own wall ring, which forms a kennel in the west and has a Ecktourelle to the east. A small stone house was added to this wall in the east during the Gothic period. (c) Wikipedia 2018
