A few ditches and ramparts can still be seen from the castle and a few wall sections of a ring wall to the northwest. The core of the system was a square tower with a side length of 14 m and walls about 2 m thick. The ring wall ran around the tower at a distance of about 5 m to the south, east and north, and about 10 m from the west, from which some masonry with remains of the inner wall shell from small cuboids has been preserved and secured.

Only a few remains of the wall remind of the castle that was once located here. But many of the stones have been reused as building material in the surrounding villages. In winter, when the trees have no leaves, there is also some distant view of the surrounding area.
