Bad Kösen

High over the Saale River Valley the picturesque ruins of the Castles of Saaleck and Rudelsburg commemorate their founders, the Bishops of Naumburg. Built Bishops in the High Middle Ages, this castle served to protect the trading routes, such as the Via Regia. Saaleck Castle lies just a few hundred meters distance from the Rudelsburg upstream on the Saale River.
