    According to legend, the castle Erfenstein was once connected with Spangenberg Castle (on the opposite side of the valley) by a leather bridge. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sage_von_der_Ledernen_Br%C3%BCcke

    Great ruin Erfenstein overlooking Erfenstein and the Spangenberg. The counts of Leiningen have built this castle, which consists of two castles, nothing is preserved from the upper rear castle. The climb is worthwhile, it gives the view of Spangenberg and the village of Erfenstein.

    The castle Erfenstein was built in the middle of the 13th century by the counts of Leiningen. In 1470 the castle was destroyed. Erfenstein, a rectangular keep on a rock, has been preserved and renovated. The ruin belongs to the three - Burgenweg Erfenstein, Breitenstein and Sprangenberg.

    The tower was probably rebuilt - otherwise you can see a few remains of the wall here and there on the mighty rocks.

    One of the oldest castles in the Palatinate Forest. From here a beautiful view of Erfenstein and the Burv Spangenberg opposite.
