The castle Wildenstein is located about 200 meters above the Danube on a mountain promontory. The first castle was probably built around 1000, but today's buildings are from the middle of the 16th century. Today, there is a youth hostel in the castle, and there are regular events such as medieval and artisan markets.

The Jugendherberge Burg Wildenstein is an ideal location for hikes in the Upper Danube Valley.
The castle Wildenstein in its today's form was built 1514 to 1554 by rooms of Godfried Werner from a predecessor building as a fortress plant. The well preserved castle was never conquered and today is a much visited youth hostel.

It was clear to me that you can not fully visit this castle, because I knew that the castle is home to a youth hostel.

very nicely located youth hostel with its own flair; the castle courtyard and the castle tavern are also open to the public for non-hostel guests; as hostel guests you can take tours of the castle; It gets really cozy in the evening when the day tourists are gone.
