It is a lovely walk for those, who likes to spend time in forest because the path goes on the hill in the north part of Baden Baden. Unfortunately, the ruins are covered with reconstruction and you cannot see them.

We head up here quite regularly, it's a cool old fort, plenty of battlements to roam and the views are second to none! I'd recommend going in the months when the whole thing is open: in the winter months they close off most of the...More
