Castles and Palaces
The huge baroque Heidecksburg Castle is majestically situated at the top of Rudelstadt and you can already see it from the railway station. It is the most imposing of its kind in 18th century Thuringia.
There is a fun exhibition called "Rococo en miniature" where you can marvel at a small fantasy world.
The Natural History Museum is also exciting.
Guided tours of large parts of the castle can be booked.
