The Luisenburg is said to have been a summer residence near Blankenburg, but you can not find out more about it as a hiker. But the view from up here is very nice and there is a stamp office of the Harzer hiking nobility with the number 77 and a viewing pavilion with a bench in it to rest and enjoy

The ruin of the summer residence Luisenburg contains only a few remaining walls. The climb up has it all. But you can look very nice to the east from here. A gazebo provides weather protection. Here is also the stamp office 77 of the Harzer hiking nobility. A little further down the little Jordan you will find the silver hut pond and the sawmill pond.

The Luisenburg (Harz) is a
non-preserved pleasure palace near Blankenburg (Harz).
1728  on the Calvinusberg (352.4 m above sea level) south above Blankenburg Castle, built in 1945 because of disrepair. It was a single-storey half-timbered building with an octagonal hall, which was surrounded by eight small rooms. Today, the remains of the outer walls and the staircases give an idea of the building's former appearance.A 1:15 scale replica of the Luisenburg is in the Herbergsmuseum in Blankenburg.

The ruin of Luisenburg is located on the summit of Calviusberg south of Blankenburg. In 1728 a lookout castle was built at this location for the Duchess Christine-Luise and later named after her by the people. The Luisenburg stood on the massive foundation of a former small fortress. It was a one-story half-timbered building with a dome-shaped slate roof. The building had a central room - an octagonal hall adjoined by eight small rooms.
The decline of the Luisenburg began at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1945 it was demolished to gain building material for new buildings in the vicinity of Blankenburg.
The mighty foundation walls survived this looping of the Luisenburg and can still be visited in our days. From the Calviusberg you also have a beautiful view of the northern Harz foreland with the places Cattenstedt and Timmenrode. At the site of the former castle of the Duchess of Brunswick is now a small pavilion.

At the viewing pavilion there is a beautiful view to enjoy.
After a strenuous hike, do not fall too fast on the bench, because it gives way.
As compensation for the horror, there is still the stamp of the Harzer hiking pin number 77.
