The hunting lodge of Augustusburg (German: Jagdschloss Augustusburg) was built from 1568 to 1572 above the town of the same name on a hill called the Schellenberg (516 m above sea level) on the northern edge of the Ore Mountains of Germany.

In building a new castle, Prince Elector Augustus wanted not just to create a prestigious palace for his hunting trips, but also to underline his leading position in Central Germany.

The castle currently houses restaurants and a youth hostel, the Motorcycle Museum, the Stage Coach Museum and the Museum of Hunting and Ornithology.

Augustusburg Castle is one selected site for the proposed candidacy for UNESCO World Heritage "Ore Mountain Mining Region".
