Altdahn ruin consist of three castles: Dahn, Grafendahn & Tanstein. They are sited next to one another on the rocky ridge. Built sometime around 1200 to 1232. Destroyed many times and rebuilt. The ongoing restoration is in progress.

The Altdahn Castle is one of the best castles we visited in the region. The views are amazing and there are many little hidden areas to climb and discover. Not very busy so you feel like you have the place to yourself!

Interesting looking castle that is a little hard to get to, but will be worth it once you're there. Also recommend the little towns nearby (particularly Hinterweidenthal) and their fruit markets!

There are actually three castle ruins aligned with one another. Each erected at different time periods. The earliest is believed to be 1189. They are constructed of the sandstone from the area. Breathtaking! You will spend a great deal of time roaming these grounds. There...More
