    Remains of the keep, several cellars, outer walls of buildings and the spacious Zwinger with the outer towers have been preserved from the castle. The towers of the Zwinger have loopholes for firearms. Originally, the castle had a three-wing complex consisting of a long structure, stable structure and kitchen structure, which was surrounded by a circular wall. The castle was connected to the city fortifications of the city of Amöneburg and was built from regional basalt. Window and door frames are made of sandstone.
    The freely accessible castle ruins serve as the backdrop for the OpenEyes film festival every summer.

    Amöneburg Castle was built in 1145 and, over the course of its existence, was taken, destroyed and rebuilt several times.
    More about this:

    Today the castle is a well-kept complex with plenty of seating, some with shade, some with a view, and a nice place to rest.

    The formerly mighty castle complex consisted of the castle as well as the lower Wenigenburg and the fortifications around the city. The facility was formerly the administrative seat of the Mainzischen Oberamt Amöneburg.

    The location is unique, the castle is beautifully prepared and the view is great - we regularly bring our visitors here and brag about the old Franks.
