  • This old castle is a wonder of heights and layers. It was a favorite of mine and my brother's when we were kids in the 80's. I just had the joy of revisiting it and it was just as good as I remember! Stunning vistas, lots of rooms to explore, neat clues of what the old structure might of looked like, and lovely trails all around it.
  • If you like castle ruins, you will like this one. Parking just below the castle and there is a snackbar with a terrace just outside the entrance. Entry is free. There are stairs all the way to the top, which has a stunning view of the Rhine valley and the town of Baden-Baden below. There are several hiking routes available in the area. You can also opt to hike all the way up from Baden-Baden. The only downside was that there wasn't a whole lot of information about the castle's past available on-site.
