    Darmstadt Rad-Hausberg with Frankenstein Castle. 
    The well-known Frankenstein Castle stands on a 370 m high spur of the Langenberg and is located southeast of the Darmstadt district of Darmstadt Eberstadt on the district of Mühltal. It is the northernmost of a number of castles and castle ruins on the western edge of the Odenwald and looks down on the Rhine valley. The castle was built around 1250. By 1400 they have been extended extensively. From the 17th century, it is called as dilapidated. From the castle ruins are still the Behring, kennels, parts of the shield wall, a battlement to the residential tower, remains of the palace, as well as castle gate and gate tower preserved. In the second half of the 19th century began with necessary restoration work. Her story is closely interwoven with legend and poetry, making her a popular attraction for visitors from all over the world. 🚴♂️

    If only half a ruin is still a restaurant, a kiosk and a chapel which is often used for weddings

    No idea how many times I've been up here, at least it was never the same track.
    Varied Hausbergsrunde, if you can with a delicious non-alcoholic wheat at the kiosk.
