A February 2005 trip
to Wernigerode by panda2
Quote: Wernigeröde Castle is an attraction here.
Schloß Wernigeröde GmbH is a 12th-century Romanesque castle that is an example of the German Historismus building style. It has been remodelled over time. There are weddings in the chapel; banquets in the dining hall; and receptions, conferences, and parties are held events. There's two separate routes through the castle from the courtyard.
May to October daily 10am to 6pm, last admission is at 5:30pm and it is closed MondaysAdmission: €4.50 adults, €2 children; the gardens and panorama terrace are freeThe restaurant and tearoom are open Tuesday to Sunday.Special events include open-air operas, plays, concerts, and ballets on the central terrace.We asked the staff to order a taxi for us to come at closing time when we first arrived to take us back down the hill to the train station, as the "train" on tires had stopped running for the day, though we could have walked down the hill, except that the scheduling was tight to catch our train.There are displays of little figurines in one section.

It was difficult for us to find this ride, being a fake train. After stumbling about, asking around, we eventually found this ride, located at Marktstrasse 9, to go up the hill. It's worth the money not having to hike up the hill. The leg room was too small, as we had to sit at an angle.A little narration is given in German as you go past things worth mentioning.Cost one-way is €2.50, child €1; round-trip €4, child €2.Telephone: 0 39 43/60 40 00
