Eisenhardt Castle is located on a spurlike, graduated ridge in Fläming south west of Bad Belzig. There are traces of 3,000 years of building history on the castle hill. The Butterturm in the middle of the castle courtyard is part of the romance of the castle. There are many legends as to how the keep got the name “Butterturm” (butter tower): For one, the shape resembles a butter churn, or alternatively buttermilk may have been added to the mortar. A door 17 metres up the north side of the tower appears quite bizarre. But the explanation is simple: The door could be accessed from the Romanesque castle, of which only a few foundation stones still remain.

In 1847, King Wilhelm IV visited to inaugurate the Battle of Hagelberg monument. Because the keep, built of cobblestones, was in terrible condition back then, he had it renovated. Brick was used in the renovation, which is why one half of the tower is made of cobblestones and the other half of brick.

The keep can be visited subject to charge during the museum opening hours and offers a beautiful view of the town and the Fläming landscape.
