Die Burg Katz is a castle above the Mittelrhein town of St. Goarshausen in Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. The castle stands on a ledge looking downstream from the riverside at St. Goar. It was first built around 1371 by Count William II of Katzenelnbogen. It was bombarded in 1806 by Napoleon and rebuilt in 1896-98. It’s now privately owned and not open for visitors. Though commonly known as Katz, this is actually a contraction after the original castle of Katzenelnbogen, which roughly translates to “Cat’s Elbow”, and so is popularly linked with that of the nearby Maus (mouse) Castle. :)
