About Klingemünster is this extremely well-preserved castle, which is one of the most famous in the Palatinate. From the keep you have a sensational view over the entire Rhine valley.
Here, concerts and medieval markets ("Landeckfest") take place, where you can watch all sorts of hustle and bustle.
Again, a castle tavern with a terrace invites you to enjoy Flammkuchen & Co.
Starting point of the Three Castles hike:
On the castle path from the castle Landeck above Klingenmünster first to the ruin Schlössel. Continue up to the Ringwall Heidenschuh. Then to the Martinsturm, with a good view far over the Palatinate Forest, before it goes down to the White Rock, a nice rest area. Then back to the starting point for Burg Landeck.
Despite the heat and despite the height to be overcome, the hike was very pleasant. The initially steep ascent in Münchweiler was in the shade and was not felt as exhausting. The whole route is under high beech and oak forests and was wonderful to hike. The intermediate goal Burg Landeck rewarded even more by a magnificent view. You can benefit from the food offer in the shade of large linden trees.
Great atmosphere, nice view, good Palatine food as well as classics and daily specials, delicious cakes and tarte flambée from the separate bakery, enough shady spots but also a lot in the sun. Everywhere interesting corners to discover, with a free small museum on the ascent to the lookout tower ... one of our favorite castles in the Palatinate Forest 😊
The castle Landeck above Klingenmünster was built around 1200. Since 1881, the Landeck Association operates the elaborate restoration measures. The castle Landeck is today a popular destination. The Burgschänke is open all year. From the castle courtyard, there is an impressive view of Klingenmünster and the Wingert landscape up to the Rhine plain. On the grounds of the castle ruins Landeck medieval markets are held annually under the name "Landeckfest".
