So during my last week of my exchange year to Germany I went here with friends. The weather was perfect even though it was only march. The castle is very well preserved and offers a nice time discovering new parts of the old castle. There is also a great view over the landscape and the town of Sexau. I can recommend you to bring some food and beverage with you, and just sit at the grilling place outside of the castle and just enjoy the view and calmness. A great trip to do if you are close by, but I can recommend to do it with car.

The biggest and best-kept castle in Breisgau!
Near Emmendingen, between the villages of Windenreute and Sexau.

The ruin hochburg is amazingly open and natural. There is no entry fee. You can park in the farm opposite and then have to walk up a hill through an orchard. The ruin is perched on the top of a hill and waiting to be exprlored and enjoyed. Parents will want to be children as there are lots of places with big falls and also views. At weekends there is a small shop and possible wine and sausages, but otherwise dont expect tour guides shows or infomration.

It was very interesting to visit the ruins of this castle, that probably was very impressive in the past.
at the moment the ruins are in a stage of reconstruction which makes it a bit less attractive. I'm sure that when they will finish with the works it will be a lot more impressive (and possibly the entrance would not be free...)

It is well preserved, there are signs to explain what it was each place and the view is very nice! If you are passing by it is really worth it to stop for a visit!
