Long Description:
From the castle, only small parts are in place since it was used after its destruction as a quarry. On the hilltop built, which is topped by a rocky reef, it originally covered an area of ??about 50 by 25 meters. Of the three towers of the castle on the cliff top just the keep is partly preserved. In addition, are located in this area, numerous bars and post holes and the remains of a rock-hewn staircase, which once served as a liaison to the lower castle. From this still exist parts of the enclosure, building foundations and a goal.
Today, the rocks of the upper castle is a platform which allows the views of the Upper Mundatwald and the Rhine valley.
