The six-kilometre-long promenade path was already walked by the Bavarian King Ludwig I when he visited the castle in 1830.
The varied culinary and cultural programme at Rabenstein Castle ranges from castle or cave concerts to crime and horror dinners, wild boar on the spit and whisky tastings to the large medieval market twice a year.
