    Castle ruin Windeck
    The more than 800 years old castle ruin is the symbol of Windeck in the Siegtal. It is located about 210 m above sea level and offers a clear view with a beautiful view.

    The formerly imposing castle complex was first documented in 1174 as "Castrum novum in windeke" and served as a border festival of the Counts of Berg against the Counts of Sayn. A copy of this imperial certificate and finds from the Windeck Castle can be visited in the museum village Windeck.

    Windeck Castle was destroyed for the first time during the Thirty Years' War and finally in 1860 by the French. After that, it was not rebuilt until 1960 was begun with the restoration of the castle ruins.

    Burgberg and ruin are the property of the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis.

    The castle Windeck is a ruin in Windeck in the Rhein-Sieg district. The castle ruins are located on the Schlossberg above Altwindeck. The hilltop castle was first documented in 1174 as "castrum novum in windeke", but it is considered by archaeologists as likely that it is older, since Count Heinrich Raspe III. rebuilt it around 1170 after a destruction.

    Castle ruin Windeck also accessible by bike on the access road. Wonderful view over the Windecker Ländchen and Siegtal. But nomen only omen: wind 💨 corner.

    For the first time the castle was mentioned in 1174, today the imposing ruin sits majestically above the valley of victory. The Natural Trail Victory leads directly through the walls of this historic site and opens up grandiose views.

    An imposing castle ruin that is visible from afar and that towers above Schladern. The well-preserved remains of the window front give an idea of what a representative castle must have been!
