The late medieval Knights' Castle was already very dilapidated at the beginning of the 20th century, but was then rediscovered by the members of the Wandering Bird. The association Wandervogel acquired the castle after the First World War and rebuilt it on its own. Today, the castle complex is a youth hostel, on which of course hikers and cyclists can spend the night - a must for hikers on the Werra-Burgen-Steig.
