Travel back to the Middle Ages
Ehrenburg Castle is enchanting! It always has been. With its jester days, archery competitions and banquets, this medieval setting quite rightly advertises itself as a living castle. BY CARMEN SADOWSKI.
The Mosel is a magical river. Behind almost every wall and every vineyard along its banks lies a story that has been told for hundreds of years. Imposing castles quite literally stand out, presenting themselves as the settings for many a legend; Ehrenburg Castle is one of the liveliest of these. A ghost named Stiller Heinrich is said to exist there. And the story of its origin, based on a secret kissing nook, is legendary. But these aren’t the only reasons why droves of medieval history enthusiasts flock to the forests of the Hunsrück upland near Brodenbach.
