    The Altenstein Castle was built in 1736 as a residential castle on the foundations of the worn-out Altenstein Castle for the dukes of Meiningen. After numerous changes of ownership it served at the time of the GDR as Handwerkererholungsheim. It was included in the list of monuments in the 1970s and should be opened to visitors along with the garden. In 1982, the work resulted in a catastrophic fire in which the castle burned to the ground. Even before the turnaround began with improper renovations, which quickly came to a halt. After a long construction break, the castle has been renovated since 2010 and is to be restored to its original state. From the outside you can already visit the magnificent building and stroll through the extensive park.

    The castle with its park is really a feast for the eyes.
    It is still at least a construction site inside. But there are beautiful nooks and crannies around where one can stay. A beautifully landscaped park invites you to take a walk.
