The Ludwigstein Castle is located 8 kilometers southeast of Witzenhausen and 11 kilometers northwest of Bad Sooden-Allendorf near the federal highway B27 and the Werra river. Please enter the postal address “Jugendburg Ludwigstein, 37214 Witzenhausen” into the navigation system.
A limited number of parking spaces for overnight guests, coaches and disabled people are available on the castle hill right next to the castle.

The nearest railway station is Witzenhausen (North). From there, the bus line 220 of the North Hessian Transport Association (NVV), leaves with direction to Eschwege and stops at “Ludwigstein, Witzenhausen”. It takes 15 minutes by feet up to the castle.
A taxi from the railway station to the castle costs about 15 €.
