The Old Entrance
A tunnel hallway connects the entrance hall to the castle courtyard. From there, you pass a massive wooden door to the remnants of the southwestern tower. Since the extension of the castle in the late 14th century, this door was secured by a drawbridge. Visitors had to pass a wooden pathway, 25 feet above the deep hollow, before entering the inner circle of the castle. Todays access to Castle Oberstein was created centuries later.
