    The Rosenstein castle ruins are the ruins of a hilltop castle around 1,500 meters east of the city of Heubach in the Ostalb district in Baden-Württemberg.

    The ruin is in a spur position at around 686 meters above sea level on the Rosenstein above the Westfels. The exposed location on the edge of the Swabian Alb on a promontory of the Albtrauf has always been of great strategic importance. The front and main castle are freely accessible. The "Kleine Scheuer" cave is located below the facility.

    The ruin is part of the mandatory Rosenstein program. Nice panoramic view, then either over the bridge to the Waldschenke or over the path to the Kleine Scheuer and the Sophienfelsen.

    Beautiful old ruin on the Rosenstein. You can get to the ruin from the hiking trail over an iron bridge. From up there you have a beautiful view of the valley.
    The rock face also offers a nice climbing area.

    A varied route, great view from the ruins, nice refreshment stops in the forest tavern, adventurous cave exploration in the "Finsteren Loch".

    We were there in February 2020 and could only use a very small part of the hiking trails as they were "closed due to forest damage".
    How is the current situation?
