  • Striezel

    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.

    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.

    Above the tower you have a great view over Amorbach and over to Engelberg Abbey. The ascent over the stairs to the tower is a bit cumbersome because narrow and partly dark. With oncoming traffic, there are only two alternatives.
