    As of the end of May 2017, the castle can be visited. At the donjon is indeed a scaffolding and this one can not commit. The rest of the castle is walkable and definitely worth the beads of sweat, which you shed when you climb there. The view, among other things on the Trifels is just beautiful.

    From the castle ruins Scharfenberg you have an excellent view of the Palatinate hill country and the castle Trifels.

    The Scharfenberg castle ruins, also known as "Münz", are expected to be closed until mid-2023 due to renovation work, among other things.

    Unfortunately, this ruin can not be visited until further notice, as damage to the building fabric has been detected and it has now been blocked for reasons of traffic safety. This information comes from the homepage of the "Association of Palatine Climbers e.V.", PK for short: pfaelzer-kletterer.de/content/_inhalt/news/new14.htm#apr2015_1

    From here you have a beautiful view of Trifels Castle and the Palatinate Forest and through a valley in the Rhine valley.

    At Scharfenberg Castle there was a mint, hence it was called "Burg Münz".

    From Scharfenberg still some ruins have been preserved. Due to the slightly higher location, it is even more promising than the castle ruins Anebos. Unfortunately, there is no public access to the keep.

    Unfortunately the tower has no entrance, but it is still fun to explore all corners of the walls.

    You only get to the castle field on the Weinsteig, because the Trifels is a detour. I would recommend starting a special hike that includes the visiting Trifels, the Anebos and the coin. Very worthwhile

    The view extends far over the gentle hills of the Palatinate Forest.
    It is also wonderful to scramble around on the red sandstone rocks.
