Wernigerode Castle, Wernigerode

(4.4/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • With our family a digital tour done, this was in the Dutch. You see many of the rooms in the Castle, some of the rooms were very nice. Information in the tour was fun, even for our children of 11 and 14 years.
