    From the courtyard you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Edersee. Entry does not cost anything and the climb is worth it: edersee.com.

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

    Castle complex from the 12th century well preserved. A visit is worthwhile, a good view of the lake. However, in summer very crowded on weekends

    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.
