Burg Wernerseck

Burg Wernerseck

Ochtendung

Wernerseck Castle towers on a rocky spur high above the nature reserve of the Nettetal. Located between Ochtendung and Plaidt, its keep lined with bay windows is visible from afar. As a formerly imposing residential and defense tower, it towers over the walls of the medieval castle complex. It was built from 1402 by Archbishop Werner of Falkenstein in Trier as a fortress against the Cologne-based Andernach. Their sturdy masonry was geared for siege with firearms. After the successful renovation of the residential tower, extensive work on the ring wall, the corner towers and the former farm buildings has been carried out since 2017. The Community of Burg Wernerseck is committed to ensuring that the historic building is preserved together with the owner of the castle, the local community of Ochtendung. In this way Burg Wernerseck should remain a symbol of the region and a popular destination for future generations.

Eltz Castle - the fairytale castle in the Eifel forest

High towers, picturesque oriels, protective walls and a deep castle moat amaze visitors when the well-preserved medieval castle appears out of nowhere on one of the hiking trails - e.g. the award-winning dream trail "Eltzer Burgpanorama". The interior holds some well-preserved treasures: the imposing knights' hall, the armoury and treasure chamber or the bedrooms, living rooms and writing rooms. All this can be experienced on a guided tour between April and November.
