    The Ginsburg was for centuries a frontier fortress of the Nassauer, until it decayed in the 17th century. In the 1960s, the main tower was remodeled from remnants of the ruin and provided with a viewing platform. Today, weddings, seminars and school events are held on the premises of the tower. There is also a coffee shop in the tower area.

    An interesting medieval castle ruin. Unfortunately, not much is left.
    The tower has a "Green Classroom" and a wedding room. From the tower you have a crazy view of the Siegerland!

    The picture above does not show the refreshments, but only an old half-timbered house opposite. The restaurant / beer garden is started each time by us. We were never disappointed the service is fast and friendly, the food is mostly homemade and adequate. Just right for hiking. A beer and Leberkäs with potato salad is always.

    We recommend this because eating and drinking is part of a good hike.

    The Ginsburg belongs to the village of Grund and is Hilchenbach's landmark. The tower offers a great all-round view (in good weather).
    The castle kitchen invites you to stop.

    A must for every tour in this area, if only because of its historical importance.
    In addition, a nice spot with a great view in many directions.

    The castle was a Nassau border fortress built in the 12th century. The mountain festival was first mentioned in a document dated April 27, 1292 under the name "Ginsberg" or "Ginsburg", which is in use today. Today the facility is a German-Dutch memorial, exhibition room, wedding room, green classroom, event location, local excursion destination and vantage point as well as an extracurricular learning location.
    The Ginsburg lies in the area of the city of Hilchenbach and belongs to the village of Grund. The hilltop castle was built on a 590m high, steeply sloping erosion edge of the Eder highlands.
