Kauzenburg castle - a bird's eye view

The counts of Sponheim built Kauzenburg castle at the beginning of the 13th century. The historical New Town grew up around it. The inhabitants of the castle, craftsmen, farmers, tradesmen and monks lived here side by side. In 1689, the troops of King Louis XIV destroyed the castle. After various modifications, it was the architect Gottfried Böhm that gave the castle its present appearance in 1972. Today, Kauzenburg castle is a restaurant with a spectacular panoramic view. Medieval banquets are held in the historical vaulted cellar and are a special culinary experience accompanied by medieval entertainment.
