With the use of your imagination and the information panel you can really see how it was before. Just a small detour on your way from the Felsenkirche to the castle above.

Took the well worth-it long climb to the top and quite enjoyed the story of the two brothers fighting over one maiden. Not sure if true but quite imaginable.

Longer walk, but still beautiful views and surroundings. Always worth it to visit the architecture in Germany!

The walk to the old castle is very nice especially on a warm day. Unfortunately the way is not to easy to walk for little children. Don't forget to enjoy the view.

From castle Oberstein it is still quite a walk and an additional 136 steps (stairs) to the ruin. The castle was built in the12th century by Lords von Stein (Oberstein). Wirich von Stein had thrown his brother Emich through the window of the Castle out of jealousy, as he was love with Berta of Burg Lichtenstein, and so was Wirich... More
