The highlight of this hike is the castle of the Berwartstein, the mountain fortress of Hans von Trotha. He was a medieval local robber baron employed by the Electors of the Palatinate to raid and take the lands of the Alsacian monastery of Wissembourg. We will also see another cliffside castle, the Drachenfels Castle, and some of Germany's most spectacular scenery.
This hike takes you to the location of the mythical battle between Walter and the Burgundians, the Castle of Wasgenstein, which does actually exist. Along the way, there is an incredible landscape of sandstone cliffs and dense forests.
This hike is for photographers interested in the most spectacular views of the Trifels castle. For centuries, it protected the crown jewels of an Empire and its dungeons held prominent guests such as King Richard the Lionheart.
