Magnificent remains of days gone by. Keep in mind that if you are traveling with children the pathway to the castle is long and all uphill. Once you are up there, also keep in mind that there are some dangerous drop offs and if you...More

The walk up to these ruins is short and once up the top there are great views of the surrounding countryside, even as far as the Czech Republic. There are not too many visitors so it is quiet, and I even heard of a few...More

This was the first ruins we went to when we moved to Germany and they are still (almost 1 year later) probably one of my most favorite; if not my favorite! They are absolutely free to get into to and you can explore them at...More

Beautiful walk up the ruins. Walk through them and climb up to amazing views. Also down the street is the concentration camp.

It is a strenuous walk to the top of the hill - and then up the stairs to the top of the ruins, but it physically lifts one from the sadness of the camp. The view is amazing, especially if one times the visit for...More

We climbed the stairs to the very top of the ruins for some amazing views! It's quite steep but very well worth the small hike up!
