The Castle Construction Association
We need more ...
... people to support Burg Castle. For the things that visitors can see here have only been made possible by the commitment of a huge number of local citizens.
When not much remained of Burg Castle in the mid-19th century influential citizens took its restoration into their own hands. The most prominent of these was the textile manufacturer Julius Schumacher who found allies in politics and the church. When the Castle Construction Association was set up in 1887 the reaction of the local population was overwhelming. The people wanted to have their castle back and donations of all size poured in. As early as August 1890 the path along the battlements, the stair tower and the gate tower were officially opened. And in 1914 reconstruction work finally ended. The Castle Construction Association is still in existence today. But there are so many ideas to make people’s visits even more informative and exciting. You can help us keep the history of the castle alive with a small donation, or even become a member.
