Create an itinerary including Herzberg Castle
Herzberg Castle (German: Schloss Herzberg) is a German schloss in Herzberg am Harz in the district of Göttingen in the state of Lower Saxony. The present-day, quadrangular building has its origins in the 11th century as a medieval castle. After a fire in 1510 it was rebuilt as a schloss and is one of the few in Lower Saxony that was constructed as a timber-framed building. Because it belonged to the House of Welf for 700 years it is also known as the Welf Castle of Herzberg (Welfenschloss Herzberg).

  • Highly disappointed after hiking there, the castle is under renovations , should have been posted, and museum was closed for a wedding, total waste of day, won’t be back.

  • Under renovation, the museum was ok but not really worth the effort.
  • It's okay for a quick peek and great to look at but there's not much to do and the renovations also diminish the enjoyment.
