The castle ruin and fortified settlement of Kronenburg
Kronenburg Castle was one of the characteristic medieval hill-castles of the
Eifel built on the spur of a ridge in the Upper Kyll Valley. The self-contained
impression of the castle ruin, outer bailey and fortified settlement and their
adaptation to the topography make the special charm of this site. Kronenburg
was first mentioned in a charter of the Abbey Stablo Malmedy in 1277.
Today the locality is a touristic attraction in the Upper Kyll Valley.
