Castle renovation

From April 2021 probably until 2025/2026 there are a lot of renovations in castle. These works are necessary to maintain the castle for years to come.

During renovation measure we have a transitional museum in the outhouse. You can see exhibits like weapons and armours there and also a lot of illustrated charts with images of the murals from the knights hall and other rooms in the main building which is unfortunately currently closed due to the renovation.

Beside the transitional museum you can also visit the keep of the castle. There are 5 levels you can go through an on the top you will enjoy an amazing roundview over the countryside.

General Information

As usual, in old palaces and castles the stairs can be narrow and uneven. The interior rooms of the castle complex are not on the ground floor and are not barrier free. Please keep this in mind. 

Because of this baby carriages/buggies can not be taken into the museum rooms but may be parked under the outer stairs.

Dogs are only allowed in the inner courtyards.
