    Eichhof Castle is located here. It has a square basic shape and was originally a Gothic moated castle. In the 16th century it was converted into a castle.

    Today the seat of the agricultural center of the state of Hesse is located in the castle.

    In summer, however, the castle is transformed into the backdrop of the Bad Hersfeld Festival, which is performed here.

    During the festival season, open-air performances take place in the courtyard. Small, comfortable, recommendable.

    The former moated castle can be recognized by its large square construction.

    Eichhof Castle was originally built as a moated castle by the abbots of the Hersfeld Monastery. In the 16th century it was rebuilt as a summer palace in the Renaissance style.
    Later the Hessian landgraves took possession of the castle and it was used as a hunting lodge.
    Today it is an agricultural research institute. Every year, part of the Bad Hersfeld Festival takes place in an outside courtyard.
    Directly opposite the Eichhof Palace is an associated pharmacy garden, which is beautifully laid out, offers a large variety of plants and herbs and can be visited.
