    Very nice castle in Wernstein. Music events are often held here, which are really great. The castle is one of the most beautiful castle complexes in Upper Franconia. The Künsberg family has lived there for over 600 years. The castle consists of half-timbered elements and sandstone and is one of the Renaissance buildings.

    Unfortunately, the castle cannot be visited because it is privately owned. The system is also a real eye-catcher from the outside.
