Altenstein Castle is a ruined castle in Altenstein in the county of Haßberge in Lower Franconia, Germany. The family seat of the lords of Stein zu Altenstein, which died out in the 19th century, is located 40 kilometres north of the city of Bamberg and, since the end of the 20th century, has been managed by the county of Haßberge. The castle was renovated around the turn of the millennium and developed in a manner consistent with its former role as a castle. The ruins are no longer freely accessible, instead an entry fee of four euros is charged.
The ruins of the hill castle lie commandingly over the village of the same name on a ridge ) in the Haßberge hills between Ebern and Maroldsweisach. The castle hill rises about 150 metres above the Weisach valley.
