Manderscheid is situated at a height of 380 metres. From here, you can see the valley where the Lieser flows. Lower down in the village, there are two castles that probably date back to the 12th century. The upper castle was Trier territory, the large lower castle belonged to Luxembourg. For the best view, the cemetery is the place to be. The river acts as a dividing line between the two castles. The old buildings among the densely wooded surroundings make for spectacular photos. The castles belonged to two electoral princes who fought each other here. Every year, on the last weekend in August, Manderscheid hosts a historic castle festival. Then, all kinds of events are planned in both castles and on the meadows in the vicinity.
1.5 km from Stolzenbourg are the remains of a five hundred year old copper mine. Over the centuries, these mines, rich in copper, have attracted many people, in a village that is nevertheless far removed from the large industrial regions. Around 1856, 1887, 1901 and 1938 the production was sensational. The geological trail revalorises the remains and gives the site its rightful place in the history, geology and mineralogy of its surroundings. Part of this underground corridor system has been open to the public for several years. Fifty metres below the surface, you can get a good idea of the difficult working conditions of the copper miner.
