News und Meldungen vom Neckarsteig

Castle ruins partially closed

There is good news.
Thanks to a great effort of the THW (German Federal Agency for Technical Relief), the wall of the Minneburg of the Küchenbau, which was in danger of collapsing, could be secured in such a way that the "Vorburg" can be reopened for hikers. However, the main castle must unfortunately remain closed.

Cracks and stone eruptions were found at Stolzeneck Castle. It was therefore closed for safety reasons until further notice.
However, the closure could be limited to the area of the main castle. The outer castle with its fountain and barbecue area is open to visitors and hikers for the time being.

Visitors to the castles are requested not to enter the closed-off areas, as there is still a danger to life from individual falling stones.
