Hiking: Rötteln Castle

Rötteln castle is today one of the largest castle ruins in Baden. During its heyday, it was also one of the most lavishly furnished residences in the Rhine Valley, famous for its luxurious tapestries. The French burned the castle and left it as a ruin in the 17th century, so little of this medieval splendor has survived. This hike takes you up and around the castle ruins, hunting for the traces of the lost glory this castle once possessed.

How to Get Here:

  • The hike starts in Lörrach-Brombach and heads into the Black Forest. It ends at Lörrach main station.
