Philippstein Castle of Hesse by EuroTourData

Philippstein Castle is the restored ruins of the spur castle, built in 1390 for Philipp I, Count of Nassau-Weilburg to protect his fiefdoms. In the 16th century, the castle lost its strategic importance, was abandoned and began to fall into disrepair. Today all parts of the castle ruins have been restored and fixed. Access to the castle is possible with a key kept by the keeper.
