Seeburg Castle (Schloss Seeburg) is located on the shores of a lake called Süßer See (Sweet Lake). Contrary to its name the lake is salty. It was created by the natural leaching of rock salt in the subsoil. The name of the municipality Seegebiet Mansfelder Land refers to the fact there are several such lakes in this region.
