About a 70 km drive away you find Kassel-Calden airport, which receives a very limited number of flights and is thus probably not your best bet in arriving here. Another airport with limited connections (though not as limited as Kassel) can be found near Erfurt. The closest somewhat major international airports are in Hanover (IATA: HAJ) and the one serving Halle and Leipzig (IATA: LEJ). When arriving from further away, flying into Frankfurt Airport (IATA: FRA) and taking the train (change in Göttingen) might work out cheaper or even faster. See air rail alliances.


Herzberg castle was first mentioned in 1154. The town was part of the state of Brunswick-Grubenhagen, and the castle was for some time used as a residence by the dukes. Herzberg became a city in 1929.
