  • A real highlight in the city. Situated on the Burg Square, right next to the Cathedral. Worth a visit, weather permitting of course equal more.

  • During a visit to Braunschweig we looked at of course the town and the Castle Dankwarderode. Who now thinks of the castles of the Rhine or from the Harz mountains, will be of course a bit disappointed. The castle is very beautiful to look at from the outside and is larger than it actually is from the inside. Thus, there is only a very large room, in which there are several pieces from the history of Brunswick. We had booked no leadership, but nevertheless the guards/Museum staff gave really lots of interesting information (and a few funny stories to do so). For a very low entry price can do not wrong here and should take when visiting be sure on the program the Castle.

  • Combi-ticket: €5 for adults (Castle Dankwarderode and Herzog-Anton-Ulrich Museum) the Castle Dankwarderode is located on the Castle Square and was the residence of Henry of the lion. Under Henry, the lion was expanded during the 12th century to the Centre of the welf power the Castle Square. Also the Cathedral of Blasius and the National Museum, as well as more beautiful timber-framed buildings are located on the Castle Square. The lion statue is at the heart of the Castle Square. The castle was reconstructed according to the original plan in 1887 and rebuilt. Inside the Castle a part of the Guelph treasure from the middle ages can be seen among other things the original lion (the bronze casting once gold-plated built in 1166), gold jewellery with precious stones occupied, caskets and vestments from the 14th century, as well as a triptych. Opening hours: Monday closed Tuesday to recommend Thursday to Sunday 10:00 17:00 Wednesday 13:00 - 20:00 the tour very.

  • 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)

  • More expected entry into the Castle as I few weeks ago times (so actually the art exhibition) ultimately paid had - a large room with some of the works that probably tell much more than me the art lovers. Based on the appearance (and the 2 Lions inside) but 4 out of 5 stars.
