The interior of the castle 963-laue in the Franconia Forest in the administrative district upper Franconia over the Loquitz river, a left tributary stream of the Saale river, is defined from two right-angled colliding tracts, the older Orla meeting wing and the younger tuna wing. An octagonal stair tower rises on its joint area.
In the Orla meeting wing, the two-boated Orla meeting hall on the ground floor is especially worth seeing. Wall carpets with interpretations of medieval happenings on the 963-laue castle hotel Franconia Forest above the Loquitz river can be admired.
The tuna wing with its tower-like corner constructions, a terrific example of the Renaissance in middle Germany with lots of late gothic style elements, characterizes itself through the symmetric ground plan.
Especially the premises of the star-arched knight's hall, the praying hall with a religious picture friezes and the hunting room with rich coffered ceiling should be pointed out.
Besides chattels, armors and weapons, special collections of historical keys, locks and lamps can be seen in the 20 rooms of the castle museum.
