Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The medieval fortress of Waldeck towers high above the Edersee. The fully preserved building has over 900 years of history. The Counts of Waldeck lived until 1655 at the castle and built this castle over time. Thereafter, the castle was used as a barracks and in the 18th and 19th centuries, especially as a penitentiary and women's prison. Today you can inform yourself in the castle museum about the eventful history. Next to the museum there is a restaurant and a hotel in the castle.

    200 meters above the 27-km-long lake towers the landmark of the region, the defiant Waldeck Castle, once the seat of the Counts of Waldeck, who lived here until the 17th century. Today, the castle is home to a first-class hotel and several restaurants.
    From the viewing terrace you have a wonderful view of the Edersee and the wooded mountains of the National Park Kellerwald-Edersee.
    The visit of the castle is free of charge, the castle museum fee.
