Rumored to be the inspiration for Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Burg Frankenstein holds a lot of stories and history within its walls. Hike up from the center of town to take a look inside this ancient castle, or go for a walk in the surrounding woods. Every Sunday, a knowledgeable writer offers a free tour of the castle to explain the history and legends and answer any questions. German-speakers can book a "horror banquet," an interactive theatrical experience. Around Halloween, the castle is transformed into a haunted house.
