Husen castle ruin


Highlight for medieval fans

Husen Castle was built by the Zähringers high above the community of Hausach on the Hausacher Bergsteig in 1220. Its main purpose was to protect the surrounding silver mines. In the course of the Thirty Years’ War, however, it suffered great destruction at the hands of the Weimar troops. The castle was never rebuilt after that. In the 1980s, the keep, parts of the palace wall and the battlement tower were restored by the municipality. The medieval spectacle “BURGerLEBEN”, which always takes place on the first Sunday from May to October, is a magnet for visitors to the castle ruins in Husen. In addition to knight fights and sword fights, the observation tower is also open at this time.
