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.
