Burg Wernerseck


Share content:

Wernerseck Castle towers on a rocky spur high above the nature reserve of the Nettetal. Located between Ochtendung and Plaidt, its keep lined with bay windows is visible from afar. As a formerly imposing residential and defense tower, it towers over the walls of the medieval castle complex. It was built from 1402 by Archbishop Werner of Falkenstein in Trier as a fortress against the Cologne-based Andernach. Their sturdy masonry was geared for siege with firearms. After the successful renovation of the residential tower, extensive work on the ring wall, the corner towers and the former farm buildings has been carried out since 2017. The Community of Burg Wernerseck is committed to ensuring that the historic building is preserved together with the owner of the castle, the local community of Ochtendung. In this way Burg Wernerseck should remain a symbol of the region and a popular destination for future generations.

Burg Bischofstein

Burg Bischofstein

Burg Bischofstein sits enthroned where the wide fields of the Maifeld merge into the steep slopes of the Moselle valley. Built in the 13th century, the castle was destroyed by French troops in 1689. In the first half of the 20th century, Bischofstein Castle was rebuilt in its current building structure and converted into a residential castle. The castle is used as a school camp and can be booked as group accommodation, but is not open to the public. From April to October the keep can be climbed on Fridays to Sundays!
