Allstedt in Mansfeld-Südharz District, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany
Castle & Chateau Allstedt
Burg & Schloss Allstedt
The impressive facility was built primarily in the period from the 15th-18th centuries. It was built instead of the former imperial palace Allstedt that nearly all early German rulers used as a temporary residence and governmental center from 935-1200. The significant main castle was extensively renovated in 1975 and expanded as a museum. In addition to exhibitions on the work of Thomas Müntzer and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in Allstedt, there is cast Harz iron art and historically designed rooms and various exhibitions to visit. Of particular interest are the functional castle kitchen, with one of the largest fireplaces in Europe, and the baroque chapel which hosts concerts and weddings.

Die bedeutsame Kernburg wurde seit 1975 aufwändig saniert und museal ausgebaut. Neben Ausstellungen zum Wirken Thomas Müntzers und Johann Wolfgang von Goethes in Allstedt sind Harzer Eisenkunst guss, hist. gestaltete Räume und verschiedene Sonderausstellungen zu besichtigen.
