Bit of a steep climb up from the town, so you need to be fit. Even inside the outer wall there's bit more climbing. Circular lay-out means that you walk around and around until you reach the inner wall and the schloss & courtyard itself....More

A nice walk up from the village of Wernigerode you will find this nice old castle with a lot of interesting history and atmosphere. The rooms contains a lot of old furniture and interior. The old knights dinner room is impressive!

Full of history and interesting artifacts, and you get a stunning view of the town, can be accessed by the little tourist road train if you are not up to the steep walk up to the castle.

Very interesting visit to the castle, excellent stories about the British stealing the furniture and refusing to send it back after the war.

Took a hike up to the castle in the snow. It's a very gothic looking building but in need of serious structural repair. We couldn't go in the castle as it was closed sadly. The views however are great and it's a nice hike up.

Costing only 6 € to get in this has got to be best value attraction I have ever been to. If you want an audio guide in English it’s another 2.50€ Breath taking views of The Broken covered in snow. The castle is filled with...More

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