The castle which is around 150 metres long was built at the start of the 12th century. It is located on a rocky outcrop at a height of approx. 300 metres above the right bank of the Danube. At the time of the Kuenrings, the castle was successfully besieged and destroyed at least twice, which is why there are still only a few foundations from this time at the so-called “Bürgl” (or “little castle”).
Special highlights are the escape-proof prison with the quaint name of “Rosengärtlein” or the chapel – a romantic place that can be still be used for weddings and christenings.
The histories of the castle ruin on the right bank of the Danube extend back into the 12th century. The castle had many renowned owners such as the Kuenrings, Jörg Scheck von Wald or Anna von Polheim-Parz.
