Burg Weiler


Münzdorf (Hayingen), The county of Reutlingen

Between the settlement called Weiler and the castle of Derneck, there is a cone-shaped hill, which is prominently situated above the Lautertal and to which Stations of the Cross lead up to. Where nowadays stands a cross, there once was a small castle, which must have been built in the middle of the 12th century. The castle called Weiler must have been abandoned shortly after. There are no historical sources mentioning its builders or owners and the assumption that it could have belonged to the Lords of Gundelfingen, who gave it up in favor of the Hohengundelfingen, cannot yet be proven.
