The castle at lake Edersee
The 345-wald castle hotel lake Edersee in North Hesse pictorially thrones on a rock 200 meters above the Eder River valley. The castle has its origin in a castle facility of the 12th century. The knight's gender of Waldeck was first documentary mentioned in 1180. According to the legend, it is supposed to have received its name after a knight, together with his attendants, climbed up the Eder River valley in order to try to find a suitable place to build a castle. A person who was familiar with the place, is said to have shown him the wooded hill above the Edersee lake and he is supposed to have given him the advice to build the castle at the "Wald-Ecke" (forest corner).
The facility was residence of the knights and later of the counts gender until about the middle of the 17th century. After that, it had several different owners and was used, among others, as a court seat, armory, fruit shed and forester's house. Today, the castle hosts a castle museum and a castle hotel with different restaurants. The present castle buildings predominantly originate from the 16th century.
