Beautiful medieval castle from around 1200s
Oct 2019
Vorderburg was built around 1200 by Ulrich I of Steinach, youngest son of the aforementioned German poet Bligger II. It consists essentially of a residential building, a dungeon and a farm building.

In the 14th century, the town of Neckarsteinach was surrounded with defensive walls by the Landschad family of Steinach, turning the Vorderburg (one of the castles) and the town together into an enclosed fortification.

The castle was well preserved until the Thirty Years’ War and fell into disrepair afterwards. The northern farm buildings were not built until 1815. Since 1825, the castle has been habitable and surrounded by a park. And even though it’s still privately owned by the barons of Warsberg-Dorth – the ones that inhabits Mittelburg – the castle is rented out to and functions as seat of the Warsberg Forestry Administration.
