The Falkenstein castle is located in Selketal on top of a 134m mountain peak. The hike from the parking spaces leads visitors through a beautiful nature reserve. The nearby facilities are also part of the castle and are open to the public since the 19th century.
The castle and museum are nowadays one of the most popular tourist spots in the Harz region. The castle is part of the "Straße der Romantik" (street of romance). Different tourist spots are located here, such as a falconry and traditional knights dinner.
