The origin of the name Schneeburg is somehow unknown, except that it has nothing to do with snow ('Schnee' in German). Some trace it back to the House of Snewelin, an old regional patrician family, but this is unproven. It was first mentioned in 1312 and abandoned in 1500, because the owners moved down the hill to Ebringen. It is unclear whether it was destroyed in the Peasants' War 1525 or whether it decayed by itself.

It is located on a secondary, lower peak of the Schönberg, between Freiburg and Ebringen. More on the Schneeburg:
