High towering above the Eifel Region is the Nuerburg, making it the highest situated castle in the province. The castle which can be accessed via various walking trails from Quiddelbach offers panoramic views across the region and the adjacent Nuerburg Ring Race Course.
The castle was build by Graf Ulrich von Are and was completed in 1160. It was the centre of the Are district in today’s Eifel Region. However after the family died out around 1290 this district became part of the Cologne Region. Today one can explore the ruins of this once beautiful castle.
