The Kastelburg is the landmark of the city of Waldkirch. The lords of Schwarzenberg built the Kastelburg around 1280. The Ritterweg leads to the ruins with man-sized knight statues along the way. In 1634, the castle was destroyed by the Austrians and not rebuilt. A model of the castle before its destruction can be visited in the Elztalmuseum.
