Tower of Burg Maus
Burg Maus meaning Mouse Castle - construction started in 1356.
Local folklore attributes the name to the Counts of Katzenelnbogen's mocking of the Electors of Trier during the 30 years of construction,
who reportedly said that the castle was the "mouse" that would be eaten by the "cat" of Burg Katz.
