    Heidecksburg Castle

    by alancollins Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A castle has stood on the hill overlooking Rudolstadt since the 13th century. The present baroque castle was built in 1735 following a fire and has retained the same look since then. The Dukes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt used the Heidecksburg Castle as their residence from 1571 until 1918, a year later the castle was turned into a museum. The castle contains some 360 rooms, some of which are open to the public though there is an admission charge. You can get some really good views of the castle and the surrounding country side whilst you wander around the grounds and all for free. The castle has had a long association with the arts and one of the stages for the annual Rudolstadt Folk Music Festival is in the castle grounds. There is also a newly built coffee shop in the grounds. The castle is a 10 minute uphill walk from the town centre.
