GPS: 49°38'51"N 16°46'58.47"E (441 m above sea level)

Construction of the castle began after 1352. In 1361, Moravian Margrave Jan received the unfinished castle and after completion he eneamed it after the building method Plankenberg (in translation "Beam mountain" Planke mean lath or beam). The castle is situated on a hill surrounded by two streams that run below the castle and flow into the brook Nectava. In 1422 the castle was probably seized and burned by the Crusaders. Today you can see ramparts, parts of walls and you can still recognise the castle well today.
