Museum and History

“Life at the Knight’s Castle” is the award-winning exhibition at the Castle Museum, which provides answers to interesting questions such as: 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?

The current Corona regulation of the state of Baden-Württemberg requires us to comply with the 3-G rule when visitiing the museum or attending winter flight training at the current alert level. Should the alert level be declared, compliance with the 2-G rule is mandatory. Therefore, please bring the relevant vaccination, recovery and test certificates.

During the winter break guided tours through the castle museum are only possible  for groups by appointment.

The falconers of the German Raptor Center train our winter-hardy large griffins on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at 12 noon during the winter break. Please book an online ticket for this.

Open hours

The castle museum is taking a winter break. Guided tours for groups are possible at any time by appointment. We will reopen regularly on 1 April 2022.

Exhibition

On a journey through time from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, visitors encounter armoured knights, courageous reformers, brave warlords and passionate hunters. A true treasure trove of the castle is the library with over 3000 volumes and around 30 incunabula. The wooden library, a 200-year-old herbarium with 93 volumes, offers a unique overview of the forest flora of every era. The shield wall leads to the 40 m high keep with a turret room.

School classes

Individual class excursions with a guided tour of the museum, flight demonstration, retreat and overnight at the hostel – depending on your budget.

Guided Tours

The owner family offers guided tours for groups all year round and special reformation tours through the castle chapel– even outside the opening hours.
