The Thuringian border fortress Hanstein
A view from the legendary castle provides a view over the Thuringian Forest, the Hoher Meissner, and even further to Göttingen. The former border river Werra winds between Hesse and the Free State of Thuringia, and Hann. Münden in Lower Saxony is located nearby.
The restored castle can be visited and the well-preserved castle keep can be climbed. Weapons, objects, and clothing are on display in the knights’ hall. The sports car racer Huschke von Hanstein comes from the Hanstein family. The castle is also the setting for the annual knight games. Parts of the movie “The Physician” were also filmed at the Hanstein Castle.
