We weren't going to stop but I'm so glad we did. I've seen castles but ruins leave it all up to the imagination which is awesome!

We absolutely loved exploring these ruins, and the views they offered were superb! Some signs/history would have been great but when it is free you cant complain! No bus goes here sadly but a taxi is only €20 or you can walk through the forest to reach it. Definetly recommend a visit!

It's a nice place to visit on a sunny day. The castle ruin is up on a hill from where you can get a nice view of the city. You can also explore the ruins a little, by wandering around or climbing up to highest tower. And it's all for free.

Don't miss this gem. Worth the small trek up from town. Make sure to go in good weather and good shoes unless you are just doing the restaurant. There are many many views and ruins to walk thru. The views of Baden Baden are not to be missed. The castle is free and could use more signage for history buffs.... More

This gem of a ruin is well worth the time to get to it. It is just lovely with many areas to explore. As soon as you think you are done there is another passageway to another large area. There are lots and lots of stairs, of course, so do plan on having good shoes. Many of the passageways are... More

Have lives in Europe for .ore than a decade and this is one of the best sets of ruins seen. Huge edifice, not just big walls with smaller fort inside. View from top from back to in 12th century would have been a world of woods.

We visited early Sunday morning...it was very enjoyable. The drive up can be a little scary as the roads are very narrow. There is parking but limited so go early! There is no entrance fee. It would be nice if there were more information signs regarding the ruins but what do you expect for free?! The views are stunning. Remember... More
