Looking for information about the Castle of Rochsburg. Built around 1100. May be linked to family name. Little information found but it may be under restoration or youth hostel.

The Roads to Ruins http://www.roadstoruins.com/rochsburg.html site gives the data you provide, however I found a little more on a tourist guide.
ROCHSBURG: Situated on a rocky spur, Rochsburg fortress tops the valley. It was occupied by the Counts of Schonburg till 1900. Attractive elements are the keep of 32 meters height, a spiral staircase in the western wing, the chapel from the 16th century, the 74-meter well from the 15th century and the wellhouse. The museum shows valuable Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo furniture and paintings.
There is also a good photograph at http://www.freedomone.com/valleyof.htm

Did some searching and found pictures and info (in german) at the following sites:
- http://www.lunzenau.com/Marktplatz/Gemeinden/Rochsburg/hauptteil_rochsburg.html
- http://www.badlausick-online.de/culture/umgebung/rochsburg.phtml

You can also visit the official site of Rochsburg village at http://www.rochsburg.de/ , its not a very userfriendly site but if you take the time to browse through it you'll find some pictures and german info about the castle.

There's also a little infosite in english at http://www.burgstaedt.de/English/HOME.HTM . If you browse through the german language section of this site you'll also find some pictures.

Also if you follow the link wurdsmiff gave you finally get to http://www.freedomone.com/castle1.htm where you find 5 more pictures.

If you're struggling with German language you could always use Altavista's free translation service to help you out. OK, it's not perfect, but provides a great start.
