The Hexenagger Castle was first mentioned in the history books in the year 982 as a knights (or hunters) castle. The royal family Weidenbach who've occupied the castle since 1834, hold several events during the year.

For four weeks before christmas, the Hexenagger Castle hosts the annual Romantic Christmas Markets each weekend beginning on the Friday and finishing up on the Sunday evening. The idea is based along the Advents calender or the 12 days of Christmas.

This is a magical event which transports visitors to a bygone era - the Medieval era. The Christmas Markets create a surreal ambiance helped along by the wafting smells of mulled wine, and roasted nuts. The markets feature an array of delightful stalls full of anything from christmas tree decorations, clothing, jewellery and traditional bavarian foods.
