Ruine Farnsburg

The imposing remains of the Farnsburg ruin, an extended castle complex, comprise a shield wall, towers, myriad buildings and a ring wall. Farnsburg is situated between Ormalingen, Buus and Hemmiken, and is an ideal place to visit if you enjoy nature, walking and pursuing activities as a family.  

The Farnsburg ruin lies on a hill between the communes of Ormalingen, Buus and Hemmiken. The original castle complex is still easy to make out and is open to visitors. From the shield wall you can take in the wonderful view of the Basel region and all the way to the Alps. You will also find an overview map and information panels on the castle at the ruin. Farnsburg is about an hour’s leisurely walk from Ormalingen, and there are several barbecue sites in the vicinity. The Farnsburg inn is a 15-minute walk from the ruin and offers both catering and accommodation facilities.
