Schmidtburg Castle, Bundenbach

and the Celtic settlement Altburg

Here leads the Hahnenbachtal Tour - Germany's most beautiful hiking trail 2012, on enchanting paths through the "Tal der Jahrtausende" (valley of the millennia).
The Schmidtburg ruin makes a mystical impression. It was the largest castle in the Hunsrück, divided into Upper and Lower castle. Here lived once the Celts, Romans and Schinderhannes, a murderer and robber who sought refuge here in the early 18th century. There are still legends that he hid his robbery in the ruins before being captured.
