    The Saffenburg was built in the 11th century by Count Adolf von Nörvenich and Albert von Saffenburg. In the year 1081 the Saffenburg found for the first time a documentary mention - and thus is considered the oldest castles plant in the Ahr valley. Today, only foundations that appear to merge seamlessly with the rocks are preserved from the castle. In 2004, a fundamental renovation began and since 2007, the castle ruin is publicly accessible again. The view of Mayschoss and the surrounding vineyards is impressive. If you take the Ahrtalweg (on the other side of the Ahr as the Rotweinwanderweg), the path leads almost directly past the Saffenburg. The small ascent from the Ahrtalweg, rewarded with a great panoramic view of the rocky part of the red wine trail between Rech and Mayschoss.

    The Saffenburg is cultivated on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in May, September and October. It is also worthwhile to visit outside these times, if only because of the panoramic view.

    Great view of the countryside, even in the colder, not green season. The bare grapevines and the rock then have their own charm. The castle is also easy to reach for less sporty people.

    Of the castle is not much there, but the wine terraces are worth seeing alone.
