Mount Rosenau stands in the middle of the Siebengebirge between the mountains Nonnenstromberg and Ölberg. Coming on the hiking trail that goes all around Mount Ölberg (Ölbergringweg), a path leads to the Rosenau with the ruin of a small medieval castle. You will see the signpost “Aufstieg zur Rosenau”, ascent to Rosenau.
The old legend about the Maiden of Rosenau comes here in a new version. The Counts of Rosenau were members of the lower aristocracy, and it was no secret that they were deeply in debt. The present Count of the Rosenau, a ruffian and lout, wanted to solve the problem by marrying into money.
The old legend of the treasure of the Rosenau comes here in a new version that includes the sassy maiden and her dragon. At the beginning of the 20th century, there was a hotel close to the ruin of the Rosenau. It was a nice house, run by a friendly landlord, in which the guests felt welcome.
