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.

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.
