Only somebody standing right up on the summit can appreciate what the Ederland means. Close to the clouds. Facing the wind. The horizon in the far distance. A visionary expanse. It is as though you break away from the earth for a while and unite with all those who throughout the ages have had the same feeling. On this rock, in this great, really well fortified castle, a veritable palace, joyfully, delightfully accommodating its guests! Within ancient walls full of life.
Waldeck castle is a medieval site situated on a rock 120 meters above the Edersee, offers an unique panorama of the Waldeck holiday area. History, tradition and up-to-date hotel comfort, form a homogenous whole.
The Cavern Power Station of Waldeck
Several hydroelectric power plants were gradually built to generate electricity after the installation of the Edertal dam. Pay special attention to the pumped storage power station of Waldeck II. Its generators are installed in an artificially cut cavern in the mountain. It's worth a visit.
Please fill this form for individuals or for groups and you shall receive an answer written by a live person at Schloss Waldeck. This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, an the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel. Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true. Plus they charge the hotel a commission which is normally around 20% of the room rate
