Castle ruin

Nörten-Hardenberg, Germany is a small town with 8.000 souls close to my hometown Göttingen. I never visited this spot unless a good friend of mine choose to marry here at the castle ruin above the town. The ruin is simply preserved and not restored – only the old cellar room has been restored to serve as a marriage registration office.

The castle has been built in medieval times to oversee two trade routes. The earliest document dates back to the year 1101 CE. Underneath the ruin you’ll find a hotel, a restaurant, a landscape park and the shop of the distillery producing plain corn schnapps.
