Short facts

  • Falkenstein/Harz OT Ermsleben

There it stands on a mountain spur, the Konradsburg. And is not a castle - or is it?

The Konradsburg dynasty of counts, which had been legally recognised since the 11th century, gave up their ancestral seat at the beginning of the 12th century and moved to the newly built Burg Falkenstein. A monastery was built in the place of the old castle and was subsequently abandoned by the monks during the Peasant Wars in 1525. The surviving monastery church is impressive, as is so often the case in the Harz mountains, due to its wealth underground: the five-aisled hall crypt is one of the most important monuments of late Romanesque architecture in the Harz region.
