Then the decline of the castle set in. The abandoned castle served as a quarry for the farmers in the surrounding area and only the two round towers now remain.
The first mention of the castle was by the Bishop of Naumburg, Udo I, in 1140. On 3 October 1819 the first historical association was founded here. A diorama shows wild horse hunters 15,000 years ago in the Saale Valley. New special exhibitions are presented every year.
