Weidelsburg is the largest castle ruin in Northern Hesse.

Built in the 12th century, the Weidelsburg has been uninhabitated since the end of the 16th century. From 1979 to 1987 it was partially restored at great expense. Preserved are high wall- and tower rests, massive palace buildings, the castle gate and keep. A splendid view over the landscape of the Habichtswald Nature Park with its characteristic basalt domes is offered from the former palace. Relics from the castle are shown in the Regional Museum of the Wolfhagen Country (Ritterstrasse 1, 34466 Wolfhagen)
