For the ultimate haunted house, many Halloween enthusiasts find themselves at the Frankenstein Castle Halloween party in Pfungstadt, which promises to make your blood run cold while adrenaline courses through your body as you are scared senseless. The 1,000-plus-year-old castle ruins bring evil out into the open while turning Halloween into one of the scariest nights of your life. The hairs on your arms will stand on end while your nerves are nearly fried. from fright as a seemingly endless amount of unknown creatures lurk in the darkness. 

This year marks the 42nd anniversary, so of course, everything is bigger and more terrifying. Don’t be surprised when Freddy Krüger crawls straight out of your nightmares and into the scene in front of you. With 14 areas full of fright, you’re sure to have a screamin’ good time at this Halloween bash. From witches to clowns, there is something terrifying for everyone! 

If your stomach isn’t churning from fright, grab a bite to eat at any one of the various food and drink stands in the castle courtyard. Don’t miss grabbing a drink from the Monster Bar, where you can have mulled wine and cocktails.
