From Magdeburg, there are no tours to Falkenstein castle. Without a car, it's not possible to get to know this region, particularly from Magdeburg. It's all not yet being used touristically quite as much as it should be. We'd recommend Halle an der Saale. It has a much richer cultural life than Magdeburg (Händel, the Himmelsscheibe, Halloren, Franckesche Foundations, Opera, Theater). And the Luther sites of Eisleben are easily reached from Halle, too.

"My family is visiting Germany next week and plan on touring Falkenstein Castle. We are getting off the train in Magdeburg. How do we get to the castle from there? Thanks Jim Falkenstein" (posted 06/08/2014)

You drive from Magdeburg by train to Quedlinburg and from there a bus to the bus stop GARTENHAUS in Pansfelde. From there, they then come to Fusss or with a horse drawn directly to the Falkenstein Castle.

Popular Points of Interest in and near Falkenstein (Saxony-Anhalt)

  • Falkenstein Castle (Harz)

    Falkenstein Castle (Harz)

    Falkenstein Castle (German: Burg Falkenstein) is a German castle in the Harz mountains dating to the High Middle Ages period. It is located in the town of Falkenstein/Harz between Aschersleben and Harzgerode.

    The castle lies high above the Selke valley in the district of Harz in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. Also nearby are the ruined medieval castles of Ackeburg and Old Falkenstein Castle.

    Today the castle and its museum are one of the most popular destinations in the Harz mountains. It is part of the Romanesque Road. The castle has a falconry and a restaurant that offer traditional 'knightly' food (Ritteressen).

    The castle was one of several backdrops in the seven-part children's series shot by GDR television, Spuk unterm Riesenrad, and one of the locations for the DEFA fairy tale film Schneeweißchen and Rosenrot ("Snow White and Rose Red"), as well as films in the GDR series Polizeiruf 110 The Entdeckung.

    The castle is No. 200 in the network of hiking checkpoints known as the Harzer Wandernadel.

  • Meisdorf House
    [ source: Wikipedia ]

    Meisdorf House

    Meisdorf House (German: Schloss Meisdorf) is a schloss in the village of Meisdorf in the borough of Falkenstein in the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, that is now used as a hotel. It was built in 1708 with a 12 hectare castle park.

    In the second half of the 18th century Meisdorf and the nearby Falkenstein Castle came into the possession of court official and diplomat, Achatz Ferdinand of the Asseburg. As the castle was only used as a hunting lodge and the old Meisdorf residence had become too small for the needs of the lords, he built this new, more spacious, albeit simple residence in 1787, and had the existing house converted into an official's quarter. The new mansion house, whose facade faced away from the Meisdorf was linked to the village by an avenue of lime and chestnut trees, 400 paces long.

    After the death of its creator, who was buried with his family in one of him in the baroque style of his time in a mausoleum hewn from solid rock in the nearby Selke valley, the house became the property of the Neindorf line of the family of Asseburgs. As this line expired in 1816 on the death of the vicar capitular, Louis Busso of the Asseburg, the lordship of Falkenstein went to the Eggenstedt-Ampfurt line.

    Later, the Prussian Privy Councillor and master hunter, Count Louis Augustus became its owner and had avenues laid on both sides of the mansion towards Ballenstedt and Harzgerode. A large park and lush lawns surrounded the house in his time. In addition there was a deciduous wood around the house, through which a road to a neo-gothic sandstone mausoleum was built and another led to a Swiss Cottage on top of a hill above the house.

    Close behind the buildings belonging to the house and gardens is the Selke valley. The mill (Schlossmühle) in the grounds of the house and the family mausoleum (no. 207) are checkpoints in the Harzer Wandernadel hiking trail network.

  • Konradsburg
    [ source: Wikipedia ]

    Konradsburg

    The Konradsburg is a former castle, monastery and manor house near Ermsleben in the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt.

    Konradsburg was first mentioned in 1021 and was originally built to protect the imperial estate (Reichsgut) of the Harz.[1] However it has no fortified towers, keep (bergfried) or great hall (Palas) to indicate that it was a fortified castle site.

    In 1712 the Konradsburg was put to agricultural use as the manor house for an estate, or Domäne, until 1945. In the centre of the old cloister stands the well house, a two-storey, timber-framed building, probably from the 18th century. The well is over 45 metres deep, probably dating to the time of the monastery and has a technical showpiece - a donkey gin (Eselstretrad). The other buildings were constructed in the 18th and 19th centuries for agricultural purposes.
