  • The castle is beautifully landscaped. It has a beautiful Castle Park. It is also worth a visit, it is very much to see.

  • A small, not particularly rich Principality... However wants to shine. So similar to the well-traveled von Humboldt of the residence city to have expressed once. Actually, the Kellerwald Princes have invested a lot of money in her Castle. Today's visitors have wonderfully restored to admire a lot. The Palace tour worthwhile. Worth seeing are the stone Hall with stucco work and frescoes, as well the White Hall for princely festivities, the Armory and the maid's room of the later Dutch Queen Emma.

  • Schloss Arolsen is an 18th-century castle in Baroque style. The Castle served as the residence of the family until 1918 Waldeck-Pyrmont. In 1858 was Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, Queen and Regent our later born. At the beginning of the 18th century, the old Schloss Arolsen replaced by a current Baroque lust slot. The main building was completed in 1728. The construction of the Castle gave the Principality of Waldeck-Pyrmont excessive. After joining the German Confederation the debts ran so high, that the Principality of allied with Prussia in 1867, with which the Principality of lost most of its independence. In 1918, the last frost. The castle was taken over by the municipality; the Royal family got the usufruct of a part of it. The castle was designed as a museum and library. A not-to-be-bezichtenen part is inhabited by the descendants. Tours can be done only with a guide. Photography prohibited. Stupid! They are missing so much free publicity on social media for example.

  • We visited here on a rainy day in August. You can tour 4 rooms for no cost and then must join a tour to see some other rooms in the castle. The castle is beautiful and so different from the older castle ruins we have also visited. Although the tour is in German, they had written tour sheets in English so you could follow along during the tour. Worth the hour drive for us to get there.
  • We had a private tour in this marvelous palace. It is well preserved. Recommended.
  • A beautiful castle with bounded courtyard and "noble" flair. You can marry here also wonderfully in the castle chapel. Space is for ca estimated 120-150 persons. As a result she appear also with smaller weddings well filled. There is also a gallery with organ. Photos may be made (E.g. in the context of a wedding) basically everywhere in the courtyard. The garden in the backyard is however private, and the staff of the Castle very careful that no one unauthorized enters him, probably because of many previous offences. A little further behind the Castle but also the equally beautiful Castle Park and Castle Park, which is in turn the public lies.

  • Very nice Castle, but a poor tour of the Castle. Boring, bit informative and the price of €7 / €3 is not justified, especially as the lead lasted just under 30 minutes. Compared to guided tours of the Löwenburg, the white stone wing or in the Schloss Wilhelmsthal, the lead in Arolsen cut off worst of all. We were very dissatisfied.
