Ramstein Castle

Ramstein Castle is located on a massive sandstone outcropping near Kordel in the lower Kyll valley. The complex, begun around 900 and finished around 1325 by the Trier elector Balduin of Luxembourg, was later normally used by the Trier Cathedral deans as a country estate, until it was blown up in 1689.

Among other things, a huge four-story residential tower is preserved.
