Discover the ruins of the former Heringer Castle in the middle of the forest!

The path winds along narrow passages near Kaasselbaach into the Heringer Forest.

The highlight of this hike is certainly the ruins of the Heringer Castle. This place was used by the Heringer knights as a safe haven. Today, you still see the remains of the wall carved into the rock .
