Tips

  • Ralf

    The Wachtenburg is the ruin of a spur castle on a 232 m above sea level. NN high mountain spur on the middle Haardt, a ridge parallel to the Rhine in the district of Bad Dürkheim of Rhineland-Palatinate. The castle on the so-called "Schlossberg" directly above Wachenheim an der Weinstraße is considered the landmark of the place. From the surrounding castles, it offers the best view over the Rhine ditch.
    Open throughout the year.

    The Wachtenburg is located directly on the trail Pfälzer Weinsteig. Climb the landmark that is visible from afar and enjoy the phenomenal view from the "balcony of the Palatinate" into the Rhine plain.

    On Sundays in good weather usually well attended. Be sure to climb the tower.

    Despite the fog, hell was going on an autumn Sunday. If you want to stop here you have to hurry.

    Just beautiful. The castle tempts in a unique way about Wachenheim and the Rhine plain.

    One of the many castles around which clubs look after themselves exemplary and collect funds and donations to protect them from decay.

    From Wachenburgturm you have a panoramic view in all directions. In the castle tavern you can eat delicious and enjoy a Palatine Schorle.
