Lahneck Castle, built by Elector Siegfried III von Eppstein in 1232, represents one of the earliest buildings with Gothic features nationwide. There is a trail of legends surrounding the northernmost castle of the Archbishopric of Mainz, such as that of the twelve Temple Knights, for instance, who supposedly found a refuge here and swore not to leave the castle again alive.
