In contrast to many other castles in the Werra-Bergland the Tannenburg survived not only numerous feuds, but even the Thirty Years' War without major damage. Only in the late 17th century fell the Tannenburg in the possession of the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel. Since then, the castle has been used as a home for farm workers and as a warehouse for their tools. Around 1900, the castle was redeveloped for the first time as a residential building and was then used as a youth hostel. From 1980, a hotel was planned, but this was not realized. Since the 1990s, the castle is maintained and managed by the "Association of Friends of Tannenberg".
You can visit the castle on a tour and take a break in the castle restaurant.
