Castle Falkenstein

Castle Falkenstein was built between 1120 and 1180 and has been modified frequently, but still retains the character of a medieval castle. It has a commanding location and was never captured in its history. According to legend Falkenstein Castle has its origins in a murder: around 1080, Egeno II of Konradsburg killed Count Adalbert of Ballenstedt in a fight, whereupon the murderer was allegedly made to give his family seat up to be converted into a monastery. As a result, Egeno's son, Burchard von Konradsburg, had the new Falkenstein Castle built.
