Burg Altena owes its international fame to the world's first permanent youth hostel, which was inaugurated here in 1914. As a World Youth Hostel museum, it is still in its original condition. The main museum at the castle is the County Mark Museum. The arc of suspense in the exhibition ranges from early geological history through the Middle Ages, early modern times and the industrial age to the present day.
