Very nice vantage point, from here you can see the nearby tower of "Altnussberg" which is also worth a visit.

It was first built more 600 years ago and now hosts the castle festival.

From the castle tower you have a great view of the surroundings. You can climb the tower even in the evening and admire the sunset. A donation of 1 euro per person is welcome.

The Schlossberghaus below the castle is ideal for larger groups. 28 beds. Two kitchens. A barbecue area. And lots of green for the children to play with. The castle itself is freely accessible. You have a great view.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
