Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • You can reach the castle on foot or take the narrow-gauge railway. The way to walk is steep and nothing for the elderly. The view from the top is then. You can see all Wernigerode and the surrounding area.

  • I'm a total fan of castles and this really liked me! It runs nicely through the rooms, even without Audiogiude, there was a lot of info. The current exhibition with the duck was somewhat odd, but also witizg made. Can you recommend but in total only.

  • A typical Castle of Historicism at least in its current state. Thus typical cluttered with strong tendency to the kitsch. Similar to high Königstein in the Alsace region. In its own way but interesting and worth seeing. It boots up with a narrow-gauge railway and down, can visit the Castle and enjoy the view. A nice package.
