A guided tour through the museum of Stein Castle in the little town of Hartenstein takes the visitor back into the world of past centuries. The show rooms include valuable cultural exhibits from the Middle Ages to Modern Times as well as collection of old batons, thrustings, armaments, torture equipment and branks. The museum also offers guided tours through the castle’s living and defence areas. This provides an opportunity to authentically experience the living conditions in a castle of the lower nobility in the Middle Ages. Stein Castle is amongst the most attractive and most interesting castles in Saxony since there are only few fortifications left that have preserved their original appearance through the centuries to such an extent.
