Johann Wolfgang Goethe used to live in the Palais Boisserée, owned by the brothers Boisserée, below the castle. There he wrote following poem:

Ros’ und Lilie morgenthaulich
Blüht im Garten meiner Nähe;
Hintenan, bebuscht und traulich,
Steigt der Felsen in die Höhe;
Und mit hohem Wald umzogen,
Und mit Ritterschloß gekrönet,
Lenkt sich hin des Gipfels Bogen,
Bis er sich dem Thal versöhnet.
