Barbecue Area at The Kurt Fountain

Barbecue Area at The Kurt Fountain

Barbecuing is unfortunately not possible on the castle grounds, we recommend the barbecue area at the Kurt Fountain: It is located in the middle of the forest of the Mühlbachtal and can be reached on foot from the castle in about 30 minutes.
The barbecue area can be reserved at the municipality Siegelsbach.
