  • The castle is situated above the village of Hochburg overlooking the East end Sexau. The stronghold is a beautiful destination lovingly restored by volunteers and associations outside of the festivals and events.

  • Now, a ruin is a ruin is a ruin and still applies the high Castle (formerly probably "Hachberg") to the largest castle complex in South Baden. The first documentary mention was in the 12th century. Today, there are only a few walls between Sexau and Emmendingen. However, also because one has a wonderful view in the Emmendinger level as well as in the Sexauer Valley is worth a visit.

  • I'm a fan of the Castle and grew up in the vicinity of the ruins. Therefore I used to play as a child and young people very often on the stronghold. Even today I like to go to the high castle when I visit my parents. Large, winding ruins, where there is much to discover. Unfortunately, some parts are now locked, because it is too dangerous. But I think this is understandable. Down at the estate, you can park and then walk up the tarred road to the ruins on foot. Above, you have great views over the surrounding country.

  • I visited the castle on the occasion Hochburg Fest 2016 on the September. Friendly atmosphere, demonstrations of historical crafts, good food and of course great German beer, what more could you want.
  • Very well maintained ruin complex. Beautiful all-round view. One invites to linger.
