Burgruine Wernerseck

Burgruine Wernerseck


The late medieval castle complex was built on the mountain ridge around 1402 by Werner von Falkenstein, Elector and Archbishop of Trier (1388-1418).

The complex was built on the foundation of a much older castle, which, however, was never mentioned in a document.
A mighty, four-story and 25 meter high keep served as the residential tower, the masonry of which is unusually thick at up to three meters.

In the 17th century the castle fell into disrepair and was given up.
In 1955 the local community of Ochtendung acquired the castle and renovated the residential tower, which was in danger of collapsing (2004 - 2007).

Almost 13,000 years ago, glowing clouds from the Laacher See volcano raced down the Brohltal and filled it with loose volcanic masses. This impressive spectacle can still be seen here today. Follow the road on the right behind the building complex and go uphill for a few meters. On the slope to the right, the layers of ash (trass) that have settled on the rocks of the older basement can be clearly seen. And where volcanoes were active, mineral springs are usually not far away.
