Manderscheid is located at an altitude of 380 meters. From here you look at the valley where the Lieser flows. Lower in the village are two castles that probably date from the twelfth century. The upper castle was "Trier" territory, the large lower castle belonged to Luxembourg. For the best view, you must visit the cemetery. The river serves as the boundary between the two castles. The old buildings between the densely wooded area make for spectacularly beautiful photos. The castles belonged to two electors who contested each other here. Every year, during the last weekend of August, a historic castle festival takes place in Manderscheid. Then all kinds of events are planned in both castles and on the meadows in the vicinity.

The remains of a five hundred year old copper mine are located 1.5 km from Stolzenbourg. Over the centuries, these mines, rich in copper, have attracted many people, in a village yet remote from the major industrial regions. Production was startling around 1856, 1887, 1901 and 1938. The geological path revalues the remains and gives the site its rightful place in the history, geological and mineralogical context of its environment. Part of this underground tunnel system has been open to the public for several years. Fifty meters below the earth's surface, you can get a good idea of the difficult working conditions of the copper miner.
