Frankenhausen Castle.


Frankenhausen Castle was the original seat of the Counts of Schwarzburg, who later became the Princes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt. The family occupied the castle continuously from 1340 to 1918. After the abdication of Prince Günther Victor in 1918, the castle fell into public ownership of the state of Thuringia.

The medieval castle was badly damaged during the Peasant Wars of 1533-36 and subsequently rebuilt in the Renaissance style.

Opening Hours & Admission

The castle is open all year round from Wednesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Admission costs 2.5 € for adults and 1.5 € for concessions, students and children.
