    On the county road K 6711 from Holzelfingen to Ohnastetten there is a hiking parking lot on the left side shortly after the exit - from there you can make a nice round to the viewpoint Kleiner Greifenstein and the ruin Greifenstein. Whether in the summer as a walk or in winter with or without snowshoes.
    The hill castle was first mentioned in documents in 1160. In 1298 the castle was destroyed by the counts of Nassau and Solmser, as well as the castle Lichtenstein, which was not rebuilt. Power of Greifenstein sold the ruin Greifenstein 1308 without the consent of the governor, the high pin Worms, to the King Albrecht of Austria.
