The round castle of the Barons of Pöllnitz owes its name to the unusual, almost round layout. 
It has a small inner courtyard which is connected to an octagonal stair tower with 100 steps. The castle was the ancestral home of the lords of Pöllnitz. It was first mentioned in historical documents in 1341. The conversion of the defensive fortress into a round castle took place in 1414. The Aster family completed more conversion work in 1848. The family was expropriated in 1945 and the building fell into disrepair during subsequent decades. A pastor in the neighbouring church was able to prevent the building from being blown up in 1977. The eastern side of the round castle collapsed in 1986. Redevelopment work started in 1992. The castle, which is privately owned, has been a wedding location for the town of Triptis and part of the region’s cultural life since 2016. You can enjoy celebrations here with as many as 100 people in an unusual collection of buildings: you can use the magical inner courtyard and the festive rooms at Pöllnitz, the garden room and the Aster room in addition to the romantic gardens with the shade provided by the fruit trees.
