The Hohensyburg castle is located at a height of 245 meters above sea level in Southern Dortmund in Germany. While the castle has been given up around the year 1700, it is still nowadays a very popular recreation area. One key reason are the iconic ruins and buildings, but there are also an amazing view over the River Ruhr, the artificial Hengsteysee reservoir and the landscape around. In this Pictured Story, I take you to this beautiful place in the Ruhrgebiet Region.
Castle Hohensyburg Ruins – Location & Transport
The Hohensyburg is located in the very South of Dortmund. Before we visited the castle ruins, we had a night at the Road Stop Motel Dortmund, which is quite iconic. The easiest way to get there is by car. Before 13:00hrs, you can use the parking lot of the Hohensyburg Casino, which is just a some ten minutes walk away from the castle ruins. There is also a bus stop, Syburg, connecting to a few local bus lines.
