Life on the Knight’s Castle

“Life at the Knight’s Castle” is the title of the castle museum’s award-winning exhibition, which provides the appropriate answers to exciting questions: How did you become a knight? What weapons did a knight carry? Why were castles built? And how have its inhabitants lived in past centuries?
Vividly designed and peppered with many extraordinary exhibits, the exhibition invites you on a voyage of discovery into the past. Each of the five exhibition rooms represents a different century, always with a view of the castle’s inhabitants against the background of regional contemporary history.

After this journey through time, anyone who still climbs the 40-metre-high keep over the Dam wall will be rewarded with a fabulous view.


Unfortunately, there is no access for wheelchair users to the Renaissance building (spiral staircase).
There is a small shop in the museum.
Dogs are not allowed.
