  • The long yard to reach the Castle Dankwarderode in medieval residence of the Dukes. The lion chose Heinrich Brunswick as his residence. More about Braunschweig on my website toeightycountries.com. He founded our hometown of Munich in 1158

  • Not a castle at all but still a nice museum and worth visiting
  • In some ways the building is the best feature. The size of the exterior belies the small exhibition space inside. It is one hall containing Gothic and Romanesque pieces. There are tapestries, altar pieces, paintings and other smaller objects. It would take about half an hour to see them all. Some of the the Ivory carvings are quite good. In addition there is also the original lion from the castle square outside in the collection. While it forms part of the Herzog Anton Ulrich museum, it doesn't seem to offer a combination ticket to see both museums.
  • Awesome Architecture!!! Zentrum area is awesome!!!
  • Exhibition is only one dark room with little description on the items. (makes onky sense with a tour or if you already know about the stuff)
  • The Castle Dankwarderode, one of the landmarks of the city of Braunschweig, is part of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum and houses the medieval collection of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Knappensaal on the ground floor. Well worth a visit!
