A bird's eye view of Rötteln Castle
Rötteln Castle is one of the largest castle ruins in southern Baden. In fact it is the third-largest in all of Baden. Built on an outcrop high above Lörrach, it has an outstanding view over Lörrach, the Rhine valley, Basel and all the way to the Alps.
The ruins are a major hallmark of Lörrach and an impressive example of mediaeval castle construction. Its imposing walls, courtyards, wells, facades and two towers open to the public cry out to be explored and climbed.
The ruin's stones tell the tale of almost 1,000 years of history, from its beginnings under the rulers of Rötteln to the efforts of the association Röttelnbund e. V. to maintain the ruins since 1926. In 1938 the fort and its surroundings were declared a protected landscape.
With a small museum, a café, a beer garden and the well-maintained barbecue site right behind the fort, Rötteln Castle is the perfect excursion destination. It is situated above Haagen; from Lörrach-Haagen the way is signposted. The lower part of the castle is barrier-free.
