Description

The castle above St. Martin was built around the year 1200 and from 1441 was the seat of the "Knights of Dalberg", the first barons of the Roman Empire of the German Nation. In 1689, the castle was completely destroyed during the Palatinate War of Succession. The castle was then rebuilt and sold by the Dalberg family at the beginning of the 19th century. The castle is now privately owned and cannot be visited from the inside. Only the "Burgschänke Kropsburg" in the outer bailey is accessible and a popular excursion destination.

Accessible by car only via Edenkoben, from St. Martin on foot.
