Sightseeing and excursion trip

Castle museum in the castle

You should not miss the opportunity to visit the castle museum during your stay in the 345-wald castle hotel lake Edersee. The museum vividly tells about the changeful history of the present castle.

Lake Edersee
The lake Edersee in Hesse below the
345-wald castle hotel lake Edersee is a man-made lake, which is bordered by a dam that is 400 meters long and 47 meters high. It is fed by the Eder River, a tributary stream of the Fulda River. Because of its scenically charming location, the 27 km long lake has been an attraction for people on vacation and nature lovers during all times. It offers possibilities for almost all kinds of water sports such as fishing, bathing, sailing, surfing or boat trips.

Cavitary power plant
The construction of several water power plants took place one after the other for the extraction of electricity, after the composition of the Eder River valley blockade. A pumped-storage power station is especially worth a visit. Its generators are installed in a cavitary, a man-made cave in the hill. It is worth a visit.

Wildlife game preserve park with ornithological birds of prey station at the lake Edersee
The wildlife game preserve park, which is about 80 hectares big (about 10 km southwest of the
345-wald castle hotel lake Edersee), offers wildlife habitats for different endangered animal species (among others deer, lynxes, bighorns, raccoons, wolves, etc.). You can most likely get a good view of them from the observation booth high above the valley blockade. The bird air shows with birds of prey are a special attraction and take place on Tuesdays and Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. But the bird air shows only take place if the weather is good.

Protestant town church

But the town church also has an art historical importance. The choir had already been built in pre-reform times around the year 1300. The main nave and the tower originate from the 16th century. Especially the carved winged altar with the coronation of Maria and the scriptural scenes deserves special attention. But the two baptismal fonts (one of which is behind the altar), the sacrament alcove, the lectern as well as numerous grave memorials are also worth seeing.

Former Cistercian convent in the town part Netze
The counts Volkwin and Adolf of Schwalenberg founded a women's convent in the present town part of Netze in the year 1228. After the convent was closed in 1557, the convent buildings decayed. But the convent church remained obtained until present. Among the worth seeing exhibition pieces, the gothic three-winged altar from the second half of the 14th century is outstanding. Scenes of the life of Jesus are shown on the altar pictures.
