According to legend, Spangenberg Castle was built by "Wild Kaspar" in the remote, deserted Speyerbachtal valley in the 11th century. It served as a hiding place for him and the emperor's daughter he had kidnapped. On 6 January 1100, it came into the possession of the Speyer diocese as a gift. The first documented mention of the castle dates back to 1317. For many years, the castle served as the residence of the Stutmeister, who bred horses for the bishops of Speyer.

The interior of the castle is not freely accessible. Except on the
the castle tavern, it can only be visited from the outside.

During these days, the lower castle is freely accessible. The rest of the castle (middle and upper castle) can only be entered in the company of a member of the association. Unfortunately, damage has been done to the castle time and again in the past, so the castle is locked. If you are interested in a full tour of the castle, please contact one of the staff on duty in the Burgschänke. If business in the Burgschänke permits, someone will be happy to accompany you to the upper castle.

If you would like a tour of the castle or a guided walk on the 3-castle circular route with a certified tour guide, please contact Thomas Buschlinger - buschlinger@gefuehrt-vg-lambrecht.de - 06325-2356.

In January, February and December, the castle and castle tavern are generally closed.

Special events are subject to other rules.
