Hidden in the forest between Hemeln and Glashütte belonging to Hann. Münden, Germany you can find the ruin Bramburg. It dates back to the 11th century CE and today you can see the well-preserved donjon and some rests of the walls. You can’t enter the building but it is nice to explore the area and the forest surrounding it.
The Bramburg is located at a strategic position high above river Weser and therefore you also have good views on the valley from up above. It was first mentioned in 1063 and was used for different purposes – also by robber-knights. Therefore it was partially destroyed in 1458. Already from the 17th century on it was seen as a ruin.
The donjon is 21 meters high and also includes a dungeon. It is permanently closed for visitors without wings. You can get here on foot. From a parking area near street L561 it is a 20 minutes walk up the hill. There you can also access a 1.5 kilometers long round course and – if you still don’t have enough searched for castles – you can look for the Hünenburg Hemeln also located in the Bramwald close-by.
