Overview
More
Die Ruine befindet sich 2 Minuten neben dem Burghotel Falkenstein Die Burgruine ist über mehrere Wanderwege und Bergsteige aus dem Tal (ca. 1 Stunde) zugänglich. Die steilen Bergpfade setzen etwas Kondition und Trittsicherheit voraus, sind aber grundsätzlich gut zu bewältigen. Eine gebührenpflichtige Fahrstraße ermöglicht Tagesbesuchern die Auffahrt bis kurz unter das Burghotel sowie den gefahrlosen Aufstieg.

Castle ruins with an amazing view of the Alps. The Marianne Grotto is must see while you are there. If you drive up there is a harrowing narrow road that will test your nerves.

We walked to Burgruine Falkenstein as part of a circular walk from Pronten, where we were staying. The walk up the hill was difficult and in places not always well marked, but as long as you keep walk up you will be alright. We also...More

Our guide book suggested a hike to the castle. That was a lot of fun, but for us flatlanders (Holland) quit difficult, as we had to descent and climb a lot. ( in 4 km we went 281 meter up and 281 down sometimes really...More

It takes about 20 additional minutes to get there. You need to drive small forest road (with asphalt), and there are "windows" to get up and then down. So you can go back only between 0-10 minutes after each full hour. You also need to...More

The place where the Bavarian King Ludwig would like to build the last of his dream castles, look at the design drawings and imagine how stunning this place would have been.
