    The three-aisled pillar basilica standing on this hill has a very eventful history. According to the monastery tradition, the Frankish Gaugraf Ruthard built a castle here in the 8th century, and in 1138 a chapel dedicated to St. Godehard of Hildesheim was added.

    You have a stunning view from the top of the tower at Amorbach u Weilbach.
    It is also interesting that the boundaries of the municipalities of Amorbach and Weilbach run right through the middle of the ruin, so that restoration work is shared between the two locations.

    Above the tower you have a great view over Amorbach and over to Engelberg Monastery. The climb up the stairs to the tower is a bit difficult because it is narrow and sometimes dark. There are only two alternative options for oncoming traffic. 😀

    If you visit the Gotthard ruin, you should definitely visit the lookout tower. The ascent through the narrow staircase is rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view.

    The climb is worth it. The view is fantastic. Free entry. Stairwell is something dark flashlight or cell phone lamp helps.

    In fact, this was one of my highlights on the Nibelungensteig. Great ruin with a freely accessible tower and a magnificent 360 view.

    From the interior of the Gotthard ruin, 88 steps turn left to the tower of the Gotthard ruin. From up there you have a wonderful view of 7 surrounding valleys ... the so-called "7-valley view". U.a. you can also see Engelberg Abbey above Großheubach. You should be particularly careful when descending the stairs, as some steps are in the "dark" due to the incidence of light that is not always available.

    The ruin is nice to look at and you have a great all-round view. The history of the building is impressive.

    A well-preserved old castle, very well-kept building. The surroundings are also in very good condition.
