Wachtberg has a rich history filled with early Germanic culture. It is a rural town with castles, cathedrals, and vast farm land.
Some of this town’s more renowned castles are Castle Adendorf and Burg Münchhausen. Castle Adendorf is easily the most modern and contemporary castle of the area, as it was built in 1337, nearly 1200 after its neighboring castles. This castle has been expanded several times in its lifetime and now offers tours in groups of 10 to see its lavish halls and many tapestries.
Burg Münchhausen was built in 893 as “Husen Munich” named by the monks in the monastery Pruem. Parts of the castes have been expanded in the 12th and 13th century, leaving it untouched by modern man. Now it is used as the home of an equestrian club and the Castle Restaurant Münchhausen.
