Ruine Homburg, Läufelfingen

The Neu Homburg. The Guardian on the Lower Hauensteinpass

It was the count of Neu Homberg who gave the castle its name around 1240. Not all of the later inhabitants – bishops and bailiffs – were particularly popular, and in 1798 the people from the village burned down the castle. Since 2010, the ruins have been continually renovated, and the many visitors, families and school classes prefer to travel to the Homburg valley on the „Läufelfingerli“.
