The complex of Schwarzburg palace

About the ancestral castle of the Schwarzburg noble family

Schwarzburg Palace dominates the landscape of the central Schwarza valley. Of the once extensive and multifaceted complex that rises on a ridge high above Schwarzburg, only individual buildings remain, of which the Armoury, the Emperor's Hall and the main building of the castle attract the most attention because of their architectural-historical significance. They are a symbol of the eventful history of the former ancestral seat of the Counts of Schwarzburg, which stretches from the Middle Ages to the recent past.
