Posterstein Castle
– well-fortified in the middle ages, welcoming as a museum

The 800 year old fortress Posterstein in the middle of the Thuringian “Sprottental” houses a regional history museum since 1952. The museum invites to manifold exhibitions – the topics are ranging from the castle’s history to an early 19th century salon (“Musenhof Löbichau”). In the castle’s church you find unique, baroque woodcarvings from the 17th century.
