Blankenhain Castle


blankenhain castle

Blankenhain Castle is a large castle near Crimmitschau, dating back to the 12th century. The castle acquired its current Baroque appearance, with mansard roof and domed towers, in 1765.
After World War II, the Soviet regime ordered the castle destroyed, but it was saved by the intervention of courageous locals. Since 1981, the castle and the surrounding land have been developed as an open-air museum of agriculture and rural life in central Germany between 1890 and 1990. The museum covers 11 hectares, including 60 buildings.
