  • The ruins of a castle from the 14th century show stories past... but nothing amazing in history. However the place is very beautiful, located about 730 m above sea level and offering breathtaking views of the region and extending very far when the weather. The peak picnic places are many just above the edge of the forest, possibility to barbecue or to eat underneath at the farm Inn. The forest nearby offers many hiking paths, which are super well maintained as in the rest of the region of Basel land.

  • Were in the afternoon under the week there, of course, was there no man. Parking at the Landgasthof, then 15 min walk to the ruins. Very nice view. Has dropped her much better by the feeling me as Habsburg.

  • The ruin was renovated a few years ago. Unfortunately, stones are loose here and there again, the pioneer species would have to be removed once again do not jeopardize the stability of the ruins. On the spiral staircase, were sand and small stones and made the rising somewhat slippery. Great views of the Black Forest and in the Jura.

  • Worth a visit. The young guard of Red Cross visited the ruins in the summer camp on a hike that had children great joy in the Castle. It is super as the Castle once was.

Where to stay in Basel

Business-oriented Basel offers an overwhelming amount of mid-range hotels catering to its business clientele. The city fills up during conferences and events, so be sure to plan accordingly. There are a number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts too, but they tend to be pretty pricey. You'll find a handful of budget-friendly hostels just south of the city core. Keep in mind that as you move toward the outskirts of town for affordable accommodation, proximity to the train stations will be key. The good news is that a number of the hotels include public transport passes with the cost of a room.
