300 m from city centre and from Berlins hotel is this very nice and reserved ruine. We have visited at evening, nicely lightened. Within day is worth to go around and climb on the tower. View is beautiful.

The interesting part of Burg Zavelstein is the small road to the former castle. There are side by side tiny houses which are more then 400 years old. The church is a beautiful wedding chapel.
