Piberstein castle is a spacious complex built around a solid rock.

Piberstein Castle is an extensive and irregular complex. The core of the castle was built around a rock, the irregular palas abuts the rock on two sides and encloses a small courtyard with arcades. An open archway leads to the centre courtyard, where a staircase leads up to the arcades. From there you reach the living quarters, as far as they are accessible. On the outer wall of the gate structure there are two stepped bays. It can therefore be assumed that the wide courtyard was originally a moat, which was only filled in when the outer enclosure wall with its battery towers was built. The farm buildings are attached to this outer wall to the right of the front entrance. To the left of the gate tower protruding from the wall is a chapel, which was built in 1730 and has no direct connection with the castle.

Visits are possible by appointment for groups of 10 or more.

From May to October, the castle is open again on beautiful Sunday afternoons from 2 - 5 pm. Take advantage of this opportunity for a walk or an excursion.
