The Schadenburg Ruins
Home The Schadenburg Ruins
The Schadenburg Ruins, a rectangular stone structure, are situated above the village on the route between Ringgenberg and Niederried.
Legend has it that Baron Kuno von Ringgenberg (13th century) planned to build a dungeon on this spot, but was unable to realise his plans as he fell victim to an act of revenge. Other indications are that the fort was to be built in order to control the trading route between Interlaken and Brienz.
