  • Allow for plenty of time - the entry ticket includes also the Herzogliches Museum and the Eckhof Theater. I easily spent five hours in total looking at all the displays, with a break in between.

  • Beautifully restored castle with three different museums integrated into it. The entrance fee covers the castle, museums and visiting the theater that is also part of the castle, as well as the 'Herzogliches Museum' across the street. The staff is friendly and helpful and will cheerfully share stories and history of the castle itself and it's various inhabitants. The place is a treasure trove of exhibits and history affine kids will love it. Plan to spend at least three hours to cover all that can be seen. During our stay there was a little snack bar in the castle yard that served delicious cakes.
  • flowers and decorative fountain pretty well
