After a slight climb up the hill, getting to the castle was just out of this world with breathtaking scenery. Inside was amazing and the guy on the desk so so helpful

Worth seeing for its position if nothing else. One is able to see a fair selection of rooms and do not necessarily need a guide. the small street train will take you up to the castle . this is a wise move !

Must-see in Wernigerode. Unfortunately no photos are available to take there, but it worth going to. Nit very fancy, but cosy and nteresting. Great location above the city.

I have visited many castles throughout Europe and found this castle to be the most interesting. Every room was furnished with furniture of that period. The headsets that could be rented for a nominal fee presented good information. The view was spectacular.
