Krupka castle

The castle Krupka

The Gothic castle Krupka stands on a high promontory that separates the upper and lower part of the town of Krupka. The original castle has preserved two gates in the walls, the bastions and a strong south gable wall, part of the south tower, the remains of the western wall and a basement under the rubble of the upper castle. At the cylindrical tower you can find a monument, which commemorates the local JW Goethe´s stays between 1810 and 1813.  In summer, visitors can use the services of a guide that accompanies to all the rooms of the castle ruins.
