The complex consists of a main castle and an outer castle, from which it can be concluded that these are two ramparts of different ages. The ramparts served as a place of refuge for the population from the surrounding settlements in case of enemy attacks. Within the ramparts are the remains of a church from the Middle Ages, which is said to have been one of the first churches in the Brilon area. Further information can be found on the information boards on site.

Can you imagine that the first churches in the Brilon area were so far apart at that time that the faithful sometimes even had to manage a whole day's walk to get to Holy Mass?
