The Löwenburg Castle is located within the beautiful Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, the is a mock-ruin constructed between 1793 and 1801, designed in an ornately romantic “medieval” style that borders on the comical. Visitors can explore the Museum of Armaments and the Museum of Chivalry during tours. While the castle is currently undergoing a lengthy restoration process, with plans to recreate the medieval gardens and tilt-yard envisioned by its creator, Landgrave Wilhelm IX, many parts of it are still open to visitors.

To reach the Löwenburg castle from the Wilhelmshöhe visitor centre, located at the end of tram 1, visitors can take a 30-minute stroll through the stunning parkland. Alternatively, on “Wasserspiele” (water display) days, which occur every Wednesday, Sunday, and public holiday from May 1 to October 3, bus 23 provides direct transportation from Wilhelmshöhe Palace to the castle.
