The Schlossberg ("castle mountain") is the main viewpoint on Rosenberg, the industrial half of the twin town of Sulzbach-Rosenberg. The monument we're standing on dates back to the 1920s and lists the names of the fallen soldiers of WW I. The eponymous castle vanished much earlier. According to writings of the chronologist Braun (1615), nothing but ruins remained of what most likely was a refuge.

The distinctive elevation of the Schlackenberg ("slag mountain") to the right of the former steel mill is the lasting result of almost 150 years of industrial steel production. In its prime, the Maxhütte steel mill, now in the process of being dismantled, elevated the rural village of Rosenberg to a town with a population of several thousand.
