    East of the Waldsteinhaus rises a mighty rock face, on which the remains of the once mighty Veste Waldstein perch. This castle is today often referred to as the Red Castle, as it was for a long time assumed that the Palas had been covered with red tiles since its construction in the 14th century. Rather, the name Red Castle stems from the fact that parts of the former castle ruins in the Spanish War of Succession (1701-1714) were covered with red bricks to build a camp there. Remains of these bricks can still be found around the castle. The designation Red Castle is the invention of the Hofer secondary school director Helfrecht, who named the facility in his work published in 1795 for the first time, because he believed that the castle was always covered with red tiles. Since almost all later researchers based on it, the term was naturalized. Only Karl Dietel cleared up in his work The great Waldstein in the Fichtelgebirge with this false assumption. Through the Burgpforte you reach stone steps in the courtyard, in which were formerly various buildings (gatehouse, residential tower, cistern). The castle was built in the 14th century by the Lords of Sparneck and destroyed in the summer of 1523 by the Swabian League (see also Wandereisen-Holzschnitte from 1523). At times, entering the Red Castle was prohibited because of acute danger of collapse. After the refurbishment in 2008, you can visit the ruin again from the inside.

    Opposite the Waldsteinhaus, there is a rock wall on which the remains of the Waldstein Fortress can be seen. The fortress is also known as the Red Castle because it was believed that the roof has been covered with red tiles since it was built in the 14th century. However, this is not entirely true. It was only in the War of the Spanish Succession in 1701 - 1714 that the roof was covered with red tiles for the first time. Remains of it can still be found around the ruins.

    The ruins visible today were erected around 1703 to protect against the Spanish War of Succession. The name "red castle" probably goes back to the widely visible red tiled roof.

    The western castle, first mentioned as early as 1350, was built to replace the older eastern castle, which no longer met the requirements of a fortified structure. The builders and owners were the Knights of Sparneck.

    Exciting castle ruins directly at the parking lot and therefore very easy to reach. The castle can only be reached via a narrow, steep stone staircase. The castle is not big, so it is not recommended as the sole goal of the day, but it can be easily connected to the large Waldstein. The castle itself is moderately interesting because there is really hardly anything to see. But you should have seen them when you are there.
