Wernigerode Castle, Wernigerode
(4.4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
One of the most popular castle destinations in Saxony-Anhalt, Wernigerode Castle was built into a slope in 1213. In the 18th century, Count Christian Ernest had the castle renovated in the Baroque style that you see today. More renovations in the 19th century added the romantic touch that makes the castle seem as if it arose from the pages of a fairytale. The interior courtyard comes to life during the Christmas season with activities and events happening every hour. These include storytelling, minstrels, reenactments, and a Christmas market. The castle museum is open throughout the year and often hosts conferences, weddings, and events because of its beautiful interior architecture.

  • Really liked the Castle. Sadly let down by the weather, rain and fog. But in spite of this castle was impressed.

  • Were with friends in the Christmas tours of Lower Saxony. Went to his car, stop doing arbitrarily, but on a preliminary draft plan. Wernigerode was the next to the city of Braunschweig and Hanover before then. When pulled, it was light. Left-the Sun has already arrived. That view have decided to advance-Wernigerode Castle. You can get it from the Centre by public transport. But decided to go on foot. But in vain! And the day passes quickly, and season-December, and overhead at the end of a busy day sightseeing. That's why it is better in this case wait for transport-and here's the descent from Wernigerode Castle can be and their two. In the course of recovery-you can make some wonderful pictures. Already above additionally fortunate that Christmas was held a free concert. Wernigerode Castle inside you can bypass the halls for 1:00 (the Guide did not take). Some rooms had enough interesting exposition (see photo). The descent went through more active impact varied and desire a glimpse of approximation in Braunschweig. In the presence of 1-2 hours of Wernigerode Castle can be included in the excursion the race attractions.
