Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    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.

    More information can be found at burgludwigstein.de.

    A very imposing hilltop castle from the 15th century, is now used as a youth hostel.

    Historic castle with lookout tower, youth hostel and restaurant. Beautiful view all around in the Werratal to the northwest, Wendershausen in the west and in the south to Oberrieden and Hoheberg.

    In Corona times there is not much going on here and we could enjoy the surrounding area of the castle very quietly

    A nice but somewhat steep path to the castle, before you pass the cemetery

    This is where the L-M hiking trail (Ludwigstein-Meissner) or also known as the Schneehagenweg starts.
