Neuenstein Castle

Neuenstein Castle


Landmark of the municipality

High on a limestone cliff is the venerable Neuenstein Castle. The first building on this site was erected in the middle of the 13th century by Count Albert I of Wallenstein as Neuwallenstein. After its destruction, Simon von Wallenstein rebuilt the castle around the year 1357. Due to many conquests, the owners changed more frequently in the following centuries before Neunstein Castle finally became Hessian property in 1745. After being used as the seat of the domain’s rentmaster, the castle served as a Prussian forestry office until 1945. Today, Schloss Neuenstein is considered a landmark of the community and is used as a conference and event center.
