    Great garden, very nice and well laid out with a large variety of plants and very well maintained - for me soul food!

    The castle fortress lies west of the old town on a long mountain spur, the Willibaldsberg (464 m above sea level). The entire complex is about 420 m long and well secured by its location. The Altmühl makes an acute-angled bend, the resulting railing was an ideal location for the medieval castle and later fortress.The high medieval castle of Bishop Berthold lay on the western spur of the castle hill. This first castle complex is said to have consisted of a large stone house, a tower and a chapel and had been secured by ring walls and ditches.Source:

    The castle was built in 1355 by Bishop Berthold Burggraf of Zollern and served until 1725 as a bishopric. In addition, there is also the Jurassic Museum Eichstätt, located on the Willibaldsburg above the Altmühltal natural history museum

    The tower view, the deep well and the relatively new castle garden promise a rewarding visit to the Willibaldsburg.

    In winter, the garden has a very special magic. Snow-covered shrubs look like sugared.
