The former Count's castle can look back on almost 700 years of history. It is located on the edge of the historic old town of Landau, but just a few steps away from the town centre. Until the year 2012, the building was used as a nursing care facility for the elderly by Evangelische Altenhilfe.
Two years after the nursing home was closed, the Waldecksche Dominialverwaltung (administrative body for the Waldeck domain) sold the estate to a private hotel business. An extensive refurbishment of the castle and its outbuildings was begun in the spring of 2015.
In addition to private rooms, there is now a hotel with restaurant, an barn converted to a ballroom as well as an imposing hall in the castle for a variety of events and occasions. This hall is a popular venue for civil wedding ceremonies.
