    The 800-year-old medieval castle stands on a mountain spur made of slate above the village of Alken on the Moselle and is thus a type of spur castles.
    During the 13th century the German imperial crown was kept here.
    The castle is still privately owned, but can be visited all year round for a fee
    Worth seeing: Chapel, wine cellar and dungeon with torture chamber.

    From here you have a fantastic view of the castle Thurant and the Alkener Burgberg. It can be visited.
    Or you can reach them via the dream path Bleidenberger views.

    The ruins of Thurant Castle (also Thurandt) stand on a broad slate spur high above the village of Alken on the Moselle. It lies in the district of Mayen-Koblenz (Rhineland-Palatinate) and belongs to the type of spur castles. A special feature - in addition to the location on the steep shoulder of the valley - are the vineyards on the sunny side.

    Beautiful trail from the banks of the Moselle up to the castle, almost like the Alpine foothills.
