    Wall remains of an old Kammburg, which was probably destroyed at the end of the 13th century

    According to a folk legend lived "in the distant past" a giant on the Reinsburg and another giant on the Singer mountain. Both giants lived in a permanent feud. Smaller beings moved the giants from one place to the next, and according to legend, they argued one day just for a pastime: The giant on the Reinsburg threw a mighty hammer to Singer mountain, but missed his target and finally met the point at which later the Hammersfeld was created. Angrily, the giant threw a large lump of Schmer (either lard or mud) in the direction of Reinsburg on the Singer mountain, but also missed his target and hit the place where later Schmerfeld was founded (Wikipedia).

    There are only the remains of the castle wall. But there is a great view and a great resting place up here.

    Nice place for a rest. A foundation wall of the old castle can still be seen.

    No matter from which side you arrive at the remains of the Reinsburg wall (604 m above sea level)〽️ a very nice view to the southeast into the Wipfratal and Ilmtal, to the Heyda reservoir ... and a spacious rest area reward the slightly strenuous climb to the highest point the Reinsberg.

    Unfortunately there are only remains of the castle wall. Open-air services are held up here on “Men's Day”.

    The Reinsburg consists of the remains of a Kammburg in the Thuringian Reinsberg.
    It is located between Kleinbreitenbach, Reinsfeld and Schmerfeld.
    The foundation walls of the Reinsburg are laid out in an irregular, almost oval shape and about 60 meters long.
    This made it the largest of all castles on the slopes of the Gera.
    The ruins of the building are in the southeastern area of the former castle grounds, which is around 600 meters above sea level.
