During the 13th century a fortress was built on a hill near the village. The estate where the Guesthouse Papilio belongs to served as the outer bailey of the fortress. The Guesthouse Papilio is nowadays a recreation centre for children and teenagers. For more information and pictures you can check here: www.tour-papilio.de.
