The Knights Hall (Copyright: Kristine Löw)

Rittersaal (Knights Hall)

The Knight´s Hall was as a reception hall and a gathering place the most important room inside a Castle. Even grand festivals were celebrated in the magnificent 21 meter long and 10 meter wide hall. Nowadays the room radiates its own special atmosphere with its four pillars, the massive beamed ceiling and the small window niches. The walls were used as a canvas for paintings in the year 1900 by famous artists out of the Düsseldorf Art Academy and show significant historical events out of the lives of the Counts and Dukes of Burg. The Knight´s Hall offers your event a special festive framework and has room for 150 guests.

The Bower / Ladies heated apartment (Copyright: SBV)

Kemenate (Bower / living chamber)

The Bower was once the constantly heated main living room in Burg Castle. For that reason the mural paintings in the Bower depict the way of life in the Middle Ages at a castle. In the 1600s´ the Bower was enlarged again so larger events could be celebrated at the castle. Today it provides space for up to 70 guests and is very inviting for events due to its cozy atmosphere.

By the way: Weddings can be held here! And during specific times (Fridays between 10am and 2pm), the Civil Registry Office of Solingen offers civil wedding ceremonies. To make an appointment please get in contact with the Civil Registry of Solingen: +49 (0)212/290-3657.

The Chapel (Copyright: SBV)

Kapelle (chapel)

Every castle had a chapel. It was naturally easier and safer to have and attend your own chapel services inside of your own fortified castle walls. The Neo-Gothic style chapel was at first reserved for use exclusively by the Counts of Berg and their family. A two meter high painted wooden statue of the Arch Angle Michael (a replica of the famous statue, out of the 1500´s, in St. Andrew´s church in Cologne) watches over the altar.

Today you too can reserve this beautiful room for your wedding.

The Gallery of Ancestors (Copyright: SBV)

Ahnengalerie (Gallery of Ancestors)

The Gallery of Ancestral Portraits is located between the Knight´s Hall and the Bower. The genealogy of the regional rulers of Berg is displayed impressively in form of a family tree and through portraits beginning with Adam and Eve and then growing all the way to the last German Kaiser. This smaller room is perfect as a reception room or to set up a buffet in connection with the Bower or Knight´s Hall.
