Castle Hungerturm

VR glasses compatible (e.g. Quest 3)


A small outer bailey to the Waldstein castle ruins to the north - called the 'Hungerturm'. A really nice little castle in a sunny and dry location. The castle is very small and has never been larger. It never consisted of more than a residential tower and a surrounding ring wall. The residential tower has a high entrance that was accessible via a bridge. People protected themselves from the outside through the ring wall with a drawbridge designed as a seesaw.

Help for the tour

The virtual tour is best experienced in full screen (double click on the image or click on the button at the bottom right), on a large PC monitor with headphones or speakers. Simple reconstructions of the former building structure become visible under the mouse cursor (or when touching the touchscreen). Small details are pointed out using information symbols.
At the top right, an orientation plan and/or a map can be activated, at the right edge the music can be set to mute, a compass can be hidden or shown and switched to English.
If you activate the home button at the top of the screen, you get to the aerial photo/overview and back again.
The tour, like all the others, can be experienced with VR glasses such as a Quest 3. Without additional software – simply enter the URL of this page in the browser of the glasses, activate the VR button that is then visible there – done.
