    The parking lot at the castle Plesse is an ideal starting point for all walkers who are afraid of the altitude of the ascent. From the castle you have in good weather a beautiful view into the Leinetal, unfortunately, the keep is currently (as of May 2017) scaffolded and renovated. The Burgschänke offers delicious food and is open according to the website from March to October Tue-Fri from 11:00 and Sat + Sun from 10:00. Monday is rest day!

    From the sightseeing tower you have a beautiful view of the Göttinger Vorland, the Kaufunger forest and the Solling foothills. Gastronomy in a rustic atmosphere.

    The Plesse, a historic place that once belonged to the "foreign" Hesse, lovingly restored and is, is a worthwhile destination for hikers, cyclists and motorists. The view into the Leinetal is fantastic, the food in the Burgschänke delicious but also if you want to picnic, will find a place here - very popular is the castle wall overlooking the valley, from which you can enjoy the sunset in good weather

    The magnificent view into the foreland alone is worth the ascent to the castle. But there is also a nearby parking on the mountain. Gastronomy is available here.
