A visit to Loewenstein Castle is worthwhile, but it is actually just a large foundation made of sandstone. Most of the walls that must have existed here have been removed. In terms of fortification, the Hohenbourg, which is only a few hundred meters higher, is much more interesting, as there are even more remains of the wall.

The Löwenstein ruin is one of the listed French "Monuments historiques" and was originally built by the Lords of Fleckenstein.
From today's remains you can enjoy very beautiful views. However, the ladder to the higher viewing platform is quite steep.
