Trauschendorf tower hill

The Tower Hill maid's village is an Outbound medieval motte (moth) on the southern edge of maid's village , a modern district of Weiden in Bavaria .


The castle site is in the upper valley of the Trauschenbach, which forks south of the village and moves Trauschendorf to the east and west. On a southern slope of the western arm of the stream, the castle was about 40  meters above the valley floor. In the years 1966/67 the tower hill was completely leveled as part of the land consolidation .

Today the site is registered as a ground monument D-3-6339-0004 "Leveled medieval tower hill" by the Bavarian State Office for the Preservation of Monuments .
