Burg Blankenberg castle

Short facts

  • Hennef
The medieval castle complex of Blankenberg is visible from far and wide, right up on a rock spur above the Sieg river. A journey to the town of Blankenberg is like taking a journey back to a different time. Ruins and gate towers are relics of the glory of former days. The counts von Sayn selected an excellent spot to build their castle (1150-1180). The fortification on the treeless “blank” hill enabled the castle owners to monitor the access routes to the Siegtal valley, the Bergisches Land region, the Westerwald forest and the Siebengebirge hills.
