Castle Weißenstein

The ruined castle Weißenstein is situated in the middle of the nature reserve Steinwald between Marktredwitz and Erbendorf. In the past its owners ruled a large territory.

Although the castle never really played a historic role, its position is unique.

High granite rocks were used as base and walls of the building.

Its donjon consists of big square stones and has a strange and very unusual long shape.

Today the castle is used for cultural events like concerts etc.
