Wildenburg Castle was built during the Middle Ages in 1330 by the nobleman, Wildgraf Friedrich of Kyrburg. After a long history of destruction, reconstruction and change of ownership, it became the property of the “Hunsrückverein” in 1963.
The landmark of the Wildenburg Castle, which can be seen from miles away, is the 22 m high tower resting on quartz rock at the peak of the Wildenburg. On clear days, you can enjoy sweeping views across the Idar plateau, “Erbeskopf” the highest elevation in Rhineland-Palatinate, “Donnersberg” in the Palatinate, “Rotenfels” near Bad Kreuznach and “Schaumberg” at Tholey in Saarland. The tower is open all year round, and can be entered free of charge.
Open Jan 01, 2019 through Dec 31, 2020 from 00:00–23:45.
