With some beautifully preserved rooms from the late 1800s-early 1900s, this castle is a tiny delight. Its a bit of a steep trek up if walking, but you can take a little road-train or horse and cart from town.

The castle is on top of a hill overlooking the city, you can easily spot the place from the city center. You can walk or jog from downtown to the castle and enjoy the views as well as visiting inside.

Very nice castle with a great view to the beautifully small town Wernigerode . I hope more people book a trip to the former GDR. It’s so nice.

As far as I can tell, the next option is in the very center of Wernigerode only.
