  • A good place to just walks, picnics or just to feel the atmosphere and aura present in Switzerland. Incredibly beautiful, some gravity and tranquility, confidence and status-Swiss)

  • I know these ruins since childhood, was numerous times there - also today regular walks in the adjacent forest. The ruin is also very suitable for families with children. Also a Giebelwald is located in the adjacent forest it has ample parking where a few steps can be reached the ruins in partial. Note: Please always pay parking and vehicle only on excellent as parking areas turn off - otherwise very fast, very expensive

  • The ruins of the castle is always worth a visit. The location in the Reidholz forest is great, also you will feel transported back to the middle ages. Unfortunately, the ruins are something over besieged by families with children and by the reading especially on weekends. On the other hand, it is also understandable, offers the ruins but adventure pure. Who goes for a walk nearby, should necessarily a detour to the ruins of the Castle, it's worth!
