This small castle is a delightful surprise/ Be sure to see the interpretive film in a “basement” section. The views are nice and the history is well presented.

We recently moved to Germany and this is the first castle on the list to visit. Beautiful views of the village below, military is free, and the staff is friendly. Pretty cool to walk around and see something so old with such history.

Nestled above Landsthul in Germany, this old ruin is worth a stop. It has a restaurant make sure to have a bite or drink. Cost was very cheap. If you have 1-2 hrs to kill make it a point to stop at this lovely ruin.

These castle ruins are interesting architecturally, however, the available 'tour' is somewhat lacking. Very close to Landstuhl, however so worth the drive up the hill/mountain.

These ruins provide a lovely view of Landstuhl and the area below. I understand they offer concerts and plays during the summer months.

I walked up the hill form Landsthul. The paths are wonderful. There is a hiking/ Mt. biking trail system all around the area which would be great to explore if I had more time. The castle is from the 1300's and going inside for 5...More
