    A beautiful little castle, located in a great area. Placed above the Saale, Castle Burgk can be viewed from numerous views. At the castle itself you can experience culture and history and dine in restaurants.

    The castle was expanded in 1403 to the castle. Henry II Reuß von Burgk (1575-1639) made this his residence. Noteworthy is the protection letter issued by Wallenstein in 1632 of the rule, which was acquired for a considerable amount of money and helped to prevent the destruction of the castle and the village in the turmoil of the Thirty Years War (Wikipedia).

    Picturesquely situated on the banks of the Upper Saale, the former Reußische Residenz Schloss Burgk not only houses historic living and showrooms and precious interiors, but is also a cultural center of East Thuringia with its collections, exhibitions, concerts and festivals and is considered one of the most beautiful castles in Central Germany.Impressive late medieval fortifications enclose a building that holds numerous treasures behind a simple façade.

    I uploaded some pictures of Schloss and its charming surroundings:
    - Views from the Saaleturm
    - Hike Röhrensteig (to the ice bridge)
    - Walk Jägersteig (over wooden bridge to Burgkhammer)
    - Visit of the dam Burgkhammer to the monument day (recommendation !!)
    - Christmas market at Castle Burgk
    Maybe that makes you curious ...

    Regardless of the weather, the place offers visitors what is called "genius loci". Recommend to look at some information about the Burgk and surroundings in Google or YouTube beforehand.
