Castle Hohenaschau with Priental Museum

The castle Hohenaschau was built in the 12th century and it was the seat of important noble dynasties for about seven centuries. The original medieval knight's castle has been varied and expanded in the course of more than 800 years of existence. After the Second World War, the castle became the property of the Federal Republic of Germany. At present, it is mainly used as a holiday and recreation home.
