Castle Bückeburg

Bückeburg used to be the seat of government of the Counts of Schaumburg and later on of the Counts and Princes of Schaumburg-Lippe for centuries. The castle which is situated on an island and surrounded by water was built as a moated castle by Count Adolf VI of Holstein-Schaumburg in 1302.

The castle has been continuously occupied since its construction and some parts have been open for public viewing since 1925. Especially the Golden chamber with the famous Götterpforte (religious relic of deities) and the Great ballroom impress visitors during the guided castle tour. The elaborate golden carvings of the castle chapel are also worth seeing. The castle is surrounded by a well-kept English garden that invites visitors to take long walks.

You can enjoy royal coffee and the finest hot chocolate in the historical ambience of the old castle kitchen. Souvenirs and information material is available in the museum shop.
