    One of the largest castles in southern Germany; It's still so much get that one not only we usual often has a beautiful view or it's just romantic: here, the function of this castle is still clearly visible. It is a fortress, not a comfortable residence. Even from the outside, absolutely go to the barbecue area behind the main tower and look upward: how is here but the Defense course stack, up to the main tower (inclined against attack)! How much fear to have people of the middle ages had, if the men were forced to charge such walls. Access is fantastic: outside the walls to the drawbridge, wennman these and the gate had overcome, then through a narrow corridor from the front tower under attack. So that you could not forward storm, the gang is still bent. So much only hinted at. The castle is devoted by the way of the Röttelnbund and superbly maintained. In the summer, if the weather cooperates, romantic castle spectacles.

    It's nice to walk with good views of the entire region. Very much recommended. At the weekend more people than in the days of the week.

    The castle is perched on a rocky promontory above the villages of Haagen and Rötteln. The nearest station is Haagen/Messe, about 1.5km away, or you can take the no. 16 bus from Weil or Lörrach station...  more »

  • We like this castle ruin because it's close to home! But it is also well cared for, and has a little museum with a number of artifacts. From the castle turret - on a clear day - you can also catch a glimpse of the Alps. The view from the castle, even without the Alps, is beautiful. There's also a small restaurant so you can have a Kaffee, or an ice cream on a hot day.
  • Nice place to spend your time there, taling photos. At the bott of the castle, there is a little pub where you can have a beer or a sausage. Like!
  • Interesting ruins just off the autobahn.
  • Beautiful Castle with amazing views from the two towers. A small fee to enter and a very cheap beer garden and cafe. Excellent for a small day trip on bike or public transport from Basel followed by a small uphill walk.
  • Traditional regional food, great for walking around with kids
