And if they hadn't died ... Altenbaumburg Castle would certainly have maintained its position in the "defense triangle" around Bad Münster am Stein, which it formed together with Ebernburg and Rheingrafenstein Castle, for longer. But the line of the Raugrafen, whose ancestral seat it was, already died in the 14th century. The facility increasingly lost its importance and was eventually used as a quarry.
The ruins of Altenbaumburg are open all year round and free to access, but not gritted in winter.
Regrettably, as it is a historic site, there is no disabled access to Altenbaumburg castle ruins. Thank you for your understanding.
There are wonderful hiking trails in the area and along the Nahe. In the castle restaurant of the Altenbaumburg, the visitor can relax with food and drink after a tour of discovery.
