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.

The climb to the castle is definitely worth it if only for the spectacular views across to Brocken mountain and the town. Good food and refreshments also available at the top. Relax and take in the amazing vista. The Castle is reasonably priced at only...More

Worth walking up to, a little steep but better than taking the “train” shuttle if you are reasonably fit. The castle provides stunning views across Wernigerode and is full of interesting rooms, artefacts and pictures. Cost was a reasonable 7 Euro for an adult.

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