Ancient Courthouse (1588)

Altes Amtsgericht

Massive stone building with octagonal staircase tower dating from 1588 (last extension of the front section of the castle). In 1866, Nassau became Prussian and from  1867 to 1938, the building served - as its present name tells - as a courthouse.

Curved northern gable with rich framework ornaments, restored in 1992.
