    The Schenkenburg was built around 1250. The stump of the keep is still standing and parts of the Palas, the former hall building, are still there and protrude up to 16 meters in height. Some of the kennels are still there, but overgrown.

    You will find an Italian restaurant at the foot of the castle ruins. Tuesdays are closed there.

    The castle ruins can also be reached within a few walking minutes outside a hiking tour. The signposting of a small circuit with a detailed description of the ruin and its former appearance is perfect. Also for children an entertaining highlight!

    The view of the Kinzig valley is fantastic.
    Attention, the altitude difference is wrong. Measurement errors have crept in.
    (about 400m up and down.)

    A visit to the Schenkenburg ruins is worthwhile not only because of the beautiful view, but also because of the path around the castle, which describes the structure of the castle and its purpose using 10 well-explanatory panels.
    A visit to the Schenkenburg can be combined with a hike on the rafting path or a visit to the Schiltach / Schenkenzell swimming pool.

    A visit to the Schenkenburg can be combined with a hike on the raftsman path or with a visit to the Schiltach / Schenkenzell swimming pool.

    Well cared for by the Schenkenzellern and very nicely cut.
