Tips

  • Hunsbuckel

    Carl Puricelli, a big industrialist and owner of a steel mill, who belonged to the Rheinböller Hütte and the Stromberger Neuhütte in the middle of the 19th century in the Hunsrück, had built this hunting and pleasure palace in the historicising neo-gothic style of a medieval ruin. It should remind of an old knight castle.The castle complex probably once consisted of several buildings; Today, only the square observation tower of the castle is preserved, otherwise there are only crumbled walls. The tower has a height of eight to ten meters. The tower still contains the remains of the stairs and the historic, crumbled wooden ceiling to the first floor. A few meters away are remnants of a wall and other remains of the tower.
    The building complex is characterized by increasing tree growth, a cutting free of the ruin was last long ago. The path to the ruins is steep and also heavily overgrown, which makes access difficult. The ruin, as well as the way there, are no longer maintained today, whereby the further deterioration of the building is to be expected.
    For some time the ruin is demarcated by fences and entry is no longer possible. The ramshackle building structure and the collapsed remains of buildings make persecution life-threatening, so that next to the building and its visitors must be protected.Swell:

    Even if not particularly historical, a castle ruin in the forest is always magical. And the days of the castle are numbered, unfortunately.
