Frundeck ruins

The ruin Frundeck is the ruin of a hilltop castle of unknown class assignment southwest of Börstingen in the municipality of Horb am Neckar in the Freudenstadt district in Baden-Württemberg .

Geographical location

The Frundeckhof is located about three kilometers southwest of Börstingen and about 650 meters east of the A 81 motorway. From there, follow the wide hiking trail in the forest to the east for 500 meters. If the path turns to the southwest, the ruins of Frundeck are located above the mountain.

This castle was after the battle of Sempach a noble family from Switzerland in 1386 invested .

The Frundeck ruin consists of a high remaining wall, a vaulted cellar that looks somehow modern and in front of it there is an arch stone with letters, a broken coat of arms and the number 1885 in the floor. In relation to the history of the castle, however, it doesn't make any sense.
