The ruins of the three fortifications are perched on five adjacent red sandstone rocks. The castles are first mentioned in documents in the first half of the 12th century. With a length of almost 200 metres, the castle cluster is one of the largest medieval fortifications in the Palatinate. The castles were largely destroyed during the Thirty Years' War.
