auzenburg Castle on the “Schlossberg” hill was built by the counts of Sponheim in the early 13th century. The historic New Town developed around the castle perimeter and housed many of the “Burgmannen” - members of the lower nobility who defended the castle. A large wall surrounded the castle and New Town until the 19th century, and parts of this wall are still visible today.
The armies of King Louis XIV destroyed the castle in 1689. It was altered and rebuilt a number of times before finally being restored to its current form in 1972. Kauzenburg Castle is now a restaurant with a magnificent panoramic view. Visitors can take part in the “Rittermahl” - a truly unique culinary experience – in the vaulted cellar.
