The Old Castle contains the remains of a medieval castle. The rococo palace is a gallant pleasure palace from the 18th century with a porcelain collection. The Renaissance castle is closely linked to Johann Wolfang von Goethe. He raved about the lovingly tended castle gardens - they are a real treat for strollers and rose lovers.
