Castle ruins

On the hiking trail from the Biessenhofen ponds to Schocherswil, a hidden set of steps takes you up to the castle ruins, where between 1100 and 1200 AD there was a high-medieval defence system. Today, there is a barbecue site on the castle ruins. Between 1963 and 1972, there were archaeological excavations on the castle ruins. In addition to several arrow tips and various ceramic fragments, the most important finding was a stirrup made of iron.
