Welcome to Ludwigstein Castle
Time is relative on the Wappenburg of the Werra-Meißner district.
Time is relative on the Wappenburg of the Werra-Meißner district. Marquis Ludwig I built the Ludwigstein Castle in 1415. In 1920, it became the castle of the youth movement. History is omnipresent here, whether in the archive of the German youth movement, in the work of the youth groups, or preserved in the stories and massive walls of the castle themselves.
Groups and clubs especially appreciate the somewhat different youth hostel, which is the largest accommodation in the Werra-Meißner district with 180 beds. During your stay, you can use the numerous rooms and halls and the castle kitchen is available for events or celebrations of many kinds. In addition, the youth hostel, Jugendburg Ludwigstein, has its own indoor swimming pool with sauna, generous space for camping or outdoor activities, as well as a youth center.
At the large fireplace in the dining room, you can sit together or exchange conversation or play music and sing.
In addition, couples can officially say “I do” at the castle. Ludwigstein is one location of the Witzenhausen registry office and serves as a romantic backdrop for a wedding.
On tours of the castle, you can experience and learn about its dynamic history. The regular tours at the castle are from April through October on Sundays and holidays at 3 p.m. More information on the Ludwigstein Castle can be found here.
