Halloween at Frankenstein Castle runs through Nov. 9
October 30, 2014
Warning! Frankenstein’s Castle in Mühltal, south of Darmstadt, Germany, says it cannot guarantee the safety of guests during its Halloween fright fest, which runs through Nov. 9.
Nov. 7-9, shuttle buses will ferry brave visitors to the castle via a dark and winding road to an elevation of 1,200 feet.
At the top, 99 monsters and witches will roam the castle grounds (you’re likely to see Dr. Frankenstein’s monster himself), ready to give guests what they came for. On its website, the castle vows that it will “make your nightmares come true” with dungeons, things jumping out of dark corners and stage shows. The ghouls are tamer on Sundays, when a Halloween show is held for children.
Book tickets, which include parking, shuttle and unlimited access to the castle, at www.frankenstein-halloween.de. Information is available in English. The castle is easily accessible via Autobahn A5, exit Darmstadt-Eberstadt.
