Wachsenburg Castle was originally built in the 10th century, but it was extensively reconstructed in the 17th and 19th century.
During its history, Wachsenburg Castle has had its fair share of troubles. In 1441 a notorious robber baron took control of the castle and made it his base for his raids on the merchants of Erfurt.
The well-preserved castle (most recently restored in the 1990s) now houses a museum, a hotel and a restaurant.
