    Here you can spend a day busy and discover great highlights. The old town is characterized by its half-timbered houses, including the medieval town hall and the "crooked house". Wernigerode Castle is a museum on the outskirts of the city and offers views of the city. The rail network of the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways connects Wernigerode with the station Drei Annen Hohne, where the steam-powered Brocken Railway departs for Brocken and for even more suggestions, please look here:

    No visit to Wernigerode without sightseeing. Everyone will find something for themselves - fairytale scenery (several well-known children's films were filmed here), a fantastic view of the Harz, a great destination for hiking.

    The castle Wernigerode in Saxony-Anhalt Wernigerode received its present form in the late 19th century and became a Leitbau of North German historicism. Today it houses a much visited museum and a branch office of the Kulturstiftung Sachsen-Anhalt.

    wonderful castle with a fine view of Wernigerode. It is worth taking a castle tour. From the terraces of the individual restorations, which can be recommended without reservation, you have a beautiful view of Wernigerode. Coffee and cake or a solyanka are mandatory here.

    If you just want to enjoy the great distant view in peace, it is worth getting up early 😁 Here you have a wonderful view of Wernigerode and distant view of the Brocken 🍀 However, the castle itself is of course not yet open. That only opens at 10:00 a.m.

    After handing over to the city of Wernigerode in 1946, a “feudal museum” was set up in the castle, “which not only documents the splendor of earlier centuries, but also their misery”. The orientation of the museum is described as follows: “Sensible signs on the exhibits indicate the direction. "To the prince the splendid bed, to the subjects the straw sack".

    From 1990 onwards, the castle initially operated as a castle museum and since 1998 has served as the first German museum center for art and cultural history of the 19th century. Originally furnished living rooms of the German nobility prior to 1918, as well as thematic rooms on the history of the Stolberg-Wernigerode family and the Second German Empire are shown in almost 50 rooms. Additional focuses are also handicrafts and furniture from the 16th to the 19th century.

    Wernigerode is a beautiful Harz town with great charm. In the tourist information office next to the town hall you can get hiking needles and a wide range of everything to do with the HWN. In the old town you can go out to eat, drink coffee and / or go shopping. The castle is simply delightful and from there you have a wonderful view of the city and the Brocken.
