Fancy visiting a castle?
Let’s go to the Löwenburg Castle!
Simply magnificent: the Löwenburg Castle in Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe with its many turrets and embellishments is a real eye-catcher! But although it looks like a medieval castle ruin, the Löwenburg Castle is nowhere near as old as it looks: it was only constructed at the end of the 18th century by order of Landgrave William IX (later Elector William I). In this way, he achieved his dream of a romantic pleasure palace where he was able to feel like a noble knight. Whether it is “truly medieval” or not, a visit to the castle, which was only reopened in 2022 after extensive restoration work, is worth it!
