Tips

  • Lemmi alias Schlumpf

    The first constructions of the castle were probably built in the 11th century by the Counts of Katlenburg. Over the centuries it has been constantly expanded and rebuilt. The function of the Stauffenburg was to protect the Harz mining in nearby Gittelde as well as to secure the Thuringian military road, which ran below the Seesen castle from southeast along the Harz to Nordhausen.
    In 1778 the facility began to fall into disrepair. The stones were used, among other things, to build the domain below the castle.

    Interesting castle ruins where parts of the foundations are still present. Starting point of hikes is the recreational area Gittelde with ample parking

    The way one should plan so that one does not run directly with the expressway. But the castle ruins are beautiful
