Burg Ronneburg, Ronneburg

#28 of 209 in Historic Sites in Hesse
Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
Built mostly in the 16th century, Burg Ronneburg has a kitchen fire that's always burning during visiting hours, so you can feel the heat that a cook once slaved over. Another functioning piece of the castle is the treadmill that pulls water from the 96 m (315 ft) well inside the walls. The museum is a series of rooms dotted with furniture designed to mimic the 16th-century originals. Some of these are still painted with murals from the period.

  • Extremely well preserved castle with friendly and helpful staff. You're also allowed to touch anything inside the castle, as long as it doesn't seem super fragile. Was extremely fun to roam around!!!
  • Great place. Castle is being maintained super well and you get all information in English as well as German. Entry price is fair as it fully goes into the maintenance of the castle. Can highly recommend the christmas market there!
