"Amazing rock castle - for the knights and damsels" Ruine Alt-Dahn by Trekki
Ruine Alt-Dahn Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 23 photos
The village of Dahn in southern Palatinate Forest (Pfälzerwald) is an ideal base to explore the magic of this part of Germany. Not without a reason this is called Dahner Felsenland, Dahn Rock Country. Pink Sandstone and erosion are the building masters of all these rock formations. But it is not only these rocks which make the region so interesting but also the many castles that were built here in medieval times. The majority of these are rock castles, with stairs and rooms carved into the soft rocks.
Altdahn Castle is one of the biggest rock castles in Palatinate Forest, in fact it is consisting of three individual castles on the rock mountain range. We were here on a lovely Saturday in July 2011 during the yearly medieval Castle Festival (Dahner Burgfest).
