Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wernigerode Castle (German: Schloss Wernigerode) is a castle located in the Harz mountains above the town of Wernigerode in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. The present-day building, finished in the late 19th century, is similar in style to Neuschwanstein Castle, though its foundations are much older. The castle is open to the public and one of the most frequently visited in Saxony-Anhalt.The first mention of the Saxon noble Adalbert of Haimar, Count of Wernigerode, in a 1121 deed is also the first documentation of the settlement, which, made by deforestation, had been founded about a century earlier. The counts built the castle on a slope south of the town as their residence, that was first mentioned as a castrum in 1213. When the line became extinct in 1429, the Wernigerode lands were inherited by the neighbouring County of Stolberg. The castle became the seat of the subordinate Amt administration and was put in pledge several times.
