I loved it up at the Castle. The view is incredible and I always enjoy exploring Castles. Sadly the Restaurant was closed as it looked very nice. The Castle also is a good spot to start hiking the Battertfelsen as well

It’s not the most interesting place to visit but what a view! Well worth the climb just for this! Very enjoyable even on a hot summer day.

I walked there from the centre of town by going through the park at the back of the spa. It's well signposted once you spot the first sign. It's a steep climb in places but the views over Baden-Baden are worth it. Although the restaurant...More

The ruines of the castle are located on the hill. Unfortunately we did not enjoy the views due to the heavy fog. besides the part of ruines was under the reconstruction... Anyway we had a nice walk around the castle.

The castle has a small parking lot in front of it. There is also a restaurant inside. Behind the castle is a map of the hiking trails and we thought the trails were very good. After walking for about 20 minutes, we got to the...More

It is a lovely walk for those, who likes to spend time in forest because the path goes on the hill in the north part of Baden Baden. Unfortunately, the ruins are covered with reconstruction and you cannot see them.

We walked from town to the castle and probably an 8-10km round walk. Up hill to the castle is a challenge and recommend hiking boots. I am 55 years old and unfit, but made the trip. Well worth it. Original old castle that will amaze...More

This was much better than we expected, especially for free. You have to be careful but the stairs have railings. They are repairing parts of the castle but it is still charming. The views are outstanding. Follow the signs for Alte Schloss. There is a...More

This is a great sight to visit free of charge if you have a car or are a keen hiker. The castle is free and the trails behind it lead to a great lookout point over the whole valley. Unfortunately they are currently renovating the...More
