Blankenburg Castle - the largest Welf Castle still preserved - is the landmark of the city of Blankenburg with a history going back more than 900 years. Today's palace complex emerged from medieval castle ruins and buildings from the Renaissance period. At the beginning of the 18th century, a baroque palace with representative European architecture was built on the “Blankenstein” for what was then the Guelph princely residence of Blankenburg. The baroque architecture has been largely preserved to this day.
