    Since we have already passed the ruin several times, we made a detour there today.
    The Schmidtburg is one of the oldest and most important castles in the Hunsrück, the panoramic view of the valleys is worth seeing.
    The size alone is just gigantic. You should plan a lot of time.
    Coming from Bundenbach, we parked across from the castle ruins. Then we hiked down into the valley between the parking lot and the castle and up again on the other side. It was partly in the truest sense over hill and dale down and back up steeply.
    A beautiful ruin, which shows the enormous extent of the former castle and also makes the floor plan easy to understand.
    And the all-round view of the valleys is also worth seeing. A great castle ruin that is definitely worth a visit
    About history:
    The Schmidtburg is said to have been built as early as 926 by the three Franconian noblemen to protect against invasions from Hungary. The first reliable documentary mention was made in 1084 in connection with a new owner. (Wikipedia)
