  • The Old Castle is located high above Baden Baden The path there is well signposted. You can drive to the castle. Wonderful view over Baden Baden and the Rhine plain. Also the restaurant is recommended.

  • We made our way from the city centre to the castle on foot and despite the drop in height it was very nice. Arriving at the top if the castle is rather in 'ruin', it offers a beautiful view of the valley...

  • It's a hike, but the views are amazing! You can see for miles. The castle lets your mind wander to a time long ago. We were there before it opened so we didn't eat at the cafe, but it is still one of the best stops we made while in Germany.
  • If you love old castles and ruins, or just incredible views, this is a place for you. The castle is in ruins but there is enough there to really envision what it must have looked and felt like to live there. As a bonus there is no admission and a restaurant there. There was very few people there when we went through it. There is however, no real information about the castle ruins on site. It is a self "tour" so do your research first if you like history. The view is incredible from the tower and other vistas on site. HINT: If you don't feel like a hike to get up to the castle, simply drive up to it the back way.
