There is one more castle ruin, which belongs to Andrian: the Festenstein ruins. It thrones high above in the wild Höllen Valley canyon (lit: hell valley canyon) on a rock spur and can only be reached via a precipitous, steep mountain path.
The former castle was first mentioned during the 13th Century. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, it cannot be viewed on the inside. Today, the ground it is built on belongs to the village of Eppen – and no longer to Andrian.
