We walked from the town of Oberkirch up to the castle ruins. It is approximately a 1 1/2 mile walk each way with it obviously being an easier walk on the way back! The castle was built in 1050 and it is really amazing that...More

We parked in Oberkirch on the main street and walked here - after finding a hiking path. Definitely worth it - the ruins of the 1000 year old castle stir the imagination, and the restaurant beside it is lovely with great food and service.
