Mountain Biking Highlight
The hunting lodge was built in 1823-1826 by the Nassau Duke Wilhelm I. Destroyed to the outer walls in World War II, it is currently being rebuilt by the Stiftung Jagdschloss Platte e.V.
The castle can already be used again for events.
From here hikes along the Taunus main ridge can be undertaken.
Highly recommended is a side trip to the highlight "beautiful view of Wiesbaden" (komoot.de/highlight/181783).

From here most of the "interesting" trails leave for Wiesbaden. This is also where the Wiesbaden MTB Marathon starts. Therefore, you meet in every weather and every season "crappy" from here with two wheels, mostly full suspension, fall down the mountain.

The hunting lodge is now an elaborately renovated event location and looks very nice, but from my childhood I also know the ruins. Right next to the castle is a great restaurant with really delicious food. In summer, a small hut is also open - there is a snack bar and beer and soft drinks. Miniature golf course, children's playground and a barbecue hut are also available. In addition, the plate is a good starting point for many great tours / routes. Also some trails are available.
