Mespelbrunn castle

Schloss Mespelbrunn© Manfred /
Mespelbrunn Castle is located in a small, hidden valley between Frankfurt am Main and Würzburg. Because of its concealment, the Mepelbrunn Castle survived all the wars and remains unscathed in its original form.

The castle is open to visitors from March through November.

Henneburg© Michael Baudy /
Towering high above Stadtprozelten, the Henneburg was built by the noble family of Schenk von Clingenburg with the original name “Burg Prozelten”. Its oldest parts, the big keep and the eastern great hall, date back to the 12th century. The castle was presumably destroyed in 1688 by the French during the Palatine war of succession. In the 19th century King Ludwig I. of Bavaria took protective measures so that the castle is relatively well preserved today. The Henneburg counts among the most beautiful castle ruins in Germany.

Enjoy the wide view of the Main Valley and don’t forget to explore the subterranean pathway.
