We are preparing to fully open Uhuburg's gates to visitors in the summer of 2023 to experience the castle's features, artwork, gardens, views & vistas, courtyards and outyard gardens and trails. Visitors will tour in small groups, beginning with docent to highlight key points of interest.
The Castle's unique features are worth a visit in itself and there's plenty more to see and do! Whether admiring the 360° view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from atop the Tower or pondering the meaning of life amongst the philosophy murals, Uhuburg has something for you.
Note: Not all areas are open to the public all the time due to maintenance, weather, private uses and special events.
More Coming Soon
Multiple castle chambers available soon

Finding Us: Our Entrance
We are located at 571 Ridge Road in Helen, Georgia, USA. Sometimes Google Maps directs drivers to the property (also called Castle Con on Maps) instead of the driveway. The driveway is on the South side of Ridge Road and is marked with a 571 mailbox and the entrance is a dirt road through green metal gates under the watchful eye of an owl statue mounted on a cairn.
Please note: Uhuburg is not yet open outside of specific Pre-Opening Tours and that the castle is not visible from Ridge Road.
