What a ruin! The remaining external walls of the great hall at Landskron Castle are three storeys high and tower high above the town of Oppenheim for all to see.
The imperial castle has served as the residence for numerous kings over the centuries and was even upgraded to a palace in the Mannerist style in the 17th century. But its history has been far from peaceful. It has been destroyed many times over, first by enraged citizens and most recently by French troops.
From what was once the imperial hall, you can enjoy wonderful views over Oppenheim and the lowlands of Rhenish Hesse.
The ruins of Landskron Castle 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 Landskron castle ruins. Thank you for your understanding.
Combine a visit to the Landskron castle ruins with one to the Schwabsburg castle ruins. Then, we recommend heading to one of the numerous cosy wine bars or maybe visiting another attraction. You can find out more here: www.stadt-oppenheim.de.
