  • We went to the Castle from the city centre by foot, road (takes time limits) very nice for his passage into the Woods but tired due to being by going to the top of the Hill (picture). There are nearly midway sell cold water can refuel and rest for some time. We encountered in the little way of riders and amateur Highland ascent. Entry to the castle is free but generally neglected Castle and there isn't a tour guide or manuals to explain. The beauty of the Castle wind harp (located in the top of the wall of the main hall) (image) as well as views of the castle of the city and the forest (photo). View compensates road effort.

  • After a comfortable climb from Baden-OOS, there was an amazing view. The Castle gastronomy has a decent selection for the hikers. Visit was in October 2013

  • Only accessible by car, foot long and hard. On top of the rose of the winds, blowing very decently. Annex-cashier is already, but still does not work, admission is free. Inside the walls, all without a roof, but good

  • Easy to access, with tons of places to explore. Prepare for stairs! Great views of the Rhein valley and Baden Baden. Fun for the family! Toilets and snacks on site.
  • If you are staying in Baden-Baden, this is a must! A beautiful hike up to the castle through the forest and incredible views from within the castle that is built into the side of the mountain. Must see and it's free!
  • Really interesting ruins and well worth the short hike from Baden-Baden. You can take the stairs all the way to the top of the tower, and only a few areas are closed off from public access. Great view of the valley from the top as well.
  • Really nice view from there
  • Beautiful ruin castle. Beautiful view on Baden-Baden. And also easy to access by car... 😀
