    The complex was built between 1120 and 1180 and has since been modified many times, but has retained the character of a medieval castle. Due to the favorable location, it could never be conquered.

    At Falkenstein Castle you will find a falconry, which houses numerous native species of birds of prey. The castle also has an extensive museum.

    Right in front of the castle is a flowiger fast trail direction Meisdorf down. In order to really have fun here, you should plan to crash down there about half an hour after closing the castle, otherwise there are quite a few hikers on the way.

    Very beautiful and in its originality preserved medieval castle over the Selketal. A museum invites you to visit and a stamp office of the Harzer hiking nobility can also be found here.

    Very nice castle ensemble. Only saw it from the outside. If possible, a visit is definitely worth it.

    From the outside the castle is quite nice. However, the entrance fee is extremely expensive, which is why we saved ourselves the visit.
