    Directly on the border with French Alsace can be with 571 m above sea level. NN find the highest castle of the Palatinate.

    It boasts a very well-preserved upper castle and its height offers a perfect panorama over the gently rolling hills of the Wasgau.

    The Wegelnburg as the highest castle ruin of the Palatinate definitely has the best panoramic view of the Wasgau.

    If you want to know more about the castle, you can check out Noh's video, which is always very interesting (but definitely not scientifically proven). I like watching the videos again and again. They convey details that I can see for myself during my own visits.

    The highest fortress of the Palatinate - demensprechend is the view and also the rise. But the climb is definitely worth it.
    In July 2017 a lot of construction sites on the fortress.

    Can I just join the previous speaker ... it was just breathtakingly beautiful when we were there. The wintry mood looked like a fairy tale. The path to the castle is easy to walk on. In the castle itself, you should be very careful in winter, as there is ice and snow on almost all levels. I'm curious how it looks there in the summer!

    Very nice view, especially in the snow! The steps are then very icy and you should be careful!

    At first the castle path itself, of which this castle is a part, fascinates. Especially on the Wegelnburg the view to the Palatinate Forest is outstanding and probably not to be found anywhere else.

    Only a few meters from the border with Alsace, at 571 meters above sea level, is the highest castle in the Palatinate.
     When the weather is fine, you have a fantastic view of the Palatinate hill country!

    The view from the 571 meters and thus the highest castle ruins of the Palatinate is just great.
    In clear weather you have a breathtaking panorama!
