    The Weidelsburg was one of the most important castles in the Landgraviate of Hesse in the late Middle Ages. You reach the imposing castle ruins via a narrow serpentine path. In the gigantic east tower you can reach the viewing platform via a staircase and enjoy the magnificent panorama from there. There is also a small kiosk here with a hoisted flag showing when it is open. Mostly this is on Sundays and public holidays.

    It goes steeply upstairs then again stairs, these are wide enough, when you reach the top of the castle there is a joyful reward.

    Great view. On Sundays from 11:00 to 17:00, the tavern is open in good weather. Recognizable by the most raised flag on the tower.

    Fantastic 360 grd. Panoramic view from the Hohen Meisner to the Kahler Asten. We were lucky enough to enjoy it.

    The Weidelsburg is a very interesting and well-preserved building. You should definitely go to the east tower, from there you have a wonderful panoramic view of northern Hesse in all directions. The plateau is well secured and feasible even for those who fear heights.

    Tour start from the Weidelsburg
    If you start from the Weidelsburg over the Himmelsschaukel to Naumburg, after 2/3 of the way you come to Cafe Hasenacker.
    Here you can take a pleasant break with food and drink.
    At the end of the tour, the ascent to Weidelsburg would be a highlight with a sweeping view of the Wolfhagener Land, before it goes easy downhill to the parking lot.

    The castle complex is enthroned on top of an extinct volcanic cone. It is currently being renovated. The castle tavern is open on weekends when the weather is good.
