Eisenberg Castle Ruins behind which the Rich Past "Is Read"

The picturesque ruins of Eisenberg Castle were preserved 15 km northwest of Fussen. It was built at the beginning of the XIV century on the highest hill in the area. Despite the massive fortified wall, in the XVI century the castle was seized and destroyed by the rebellious farmers. However, the castle owner was able to get compensation. With this money he built a round tower with a spiral staircase and a bakery, installed a toilet and built a new gate.

However, in the middle of the XVII century, after the Thirty Years’ War between the Catholics and Protestants, Tyroleans burned Eisenberg down. Determined to leave nothing to the enemy, they also destroyed the nearby Hohenfreyberg and Falkenstein castles. Although only ruins remained from Eisenberg Castle, it is worth to rise up to it for the view over the mountain valley. And at the bottom, in the village of Zell, there is the castle museum with archaeological finds- ancient coins and pottery.
