Castle and Castle gardens of Stolberg

Narrow lanes and picturesque timbered houses characterize the area around the Stolberg Castle. Idyllic located on a hill at the foot of the Harz, the castle and its gardens look back on a long history. Created as a fort as early as in the 10./11. century, it served as a castle for the Stolberg dynasty between the 12. century and 1945.

Modifications in the 16. and 17. century changed the medieval construction into a renaissance castle and later on into a baroque residence. Being vacant from 1994 onwards, the Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz took care of the building in 2002. The decline of the building was stopped; a new age began! Since 2008, parts of the castle can be visited again.

There´s no castle without a castle garden! The castle gardens of Stolberg consist of terrace gardens and the wild park with a deer alley and a deer memorial. After different phases of modification, starting from the baroque garden and the scenic design to the official garden of modern times, the terrace gardens now present themselves with baroque pavilion, water basin and ambitious planting – since summer 2011, the gardens can be visited in their renovated state!
