    One of many castles in the Saale Unstruttal

    The mountain castle rises on a sandstone rock about 40 meters above the Saale. The facility consists of the fore- and the fortress, each with a nearly rectangular floor plan. Between the two is a kennel, through which a chamber gate with Romanesque canopies leads in the Torlaibung. Worth seeing is especially the 32 meter high, mountable keep (3.60 m wall thickness, original high entrance in 8 meters height) with its beautiful fireplace in the tower chamber and the guardhouse at the top of the tower. The tower dates back to around 1230. The last remaining building in the Kernburg was called a court house - today as a knight's hall, where weddings also take place. [1] Large parts of the defensive walls around the fortress and the fortress are still present.

    Very beautiful castle, where you come by the Saaleradwanderweg. Definitely worth a visit.

    It is worthwhile to come here in any case. Here you can enjoy the wonderful view or have a relaxing break in the small beer garden.

    Great, relatively well-preserved castle ruins with a beer garden full of leashes. From the castle you have a great view of Naumburg and Goseck Castle. The short branch from the Saale cycle path leads through an impressive sandstone "canyon".

    Beautiful castle ruins with daily catering. Tower can be climbed. The place is called like the castle.
    Located directly on the Saale Cycle Path and is not a real detour. So up to the castle.
