    So this castle was tricky to get parked close to due to road works near by so if you go this month be aware of diversions. That aside. This sleepy little German toytown has some truely amazing and hor...  more »

    Wewelsburg, not known for her use of Himmler ..... interesting narration in the Castle over its long history. The guards also hosts the recent history. Also very interesting and we must never forget ....

  • Interesting and one of the last remaining intact SS stations.If you love history and views, this one's for you.
  • Exceptional museums, one in the castle and one near the entrance. This was my 4th visit and everytime I find new things to discover.
  • Interesting place worth a visit with good exhibits quite a lot in English
  • The museum is very open for everyone, for (young) childeren and adults. The collection is big, astonishing and in very good shape. One can learn a lot about the castle's and local/regional history. Nice settings and displays and a huge amount of information. Reserve enough time of you want to see everything, roughly between 3 to 6 hours depending your interests. In a separate part of the castle a exposition about the Schutzstaffel, or SS, has been set up. One can read and see a lot about the bizarre and unbelievable backgrounds of Heinrich Himmler's elite Nazi soliders during WW2 and therefore this exhibition is less suitable for young childeren. Note that there are strict rules on your behaviour during your visit. For an indepth view 2 or 3 hours are needed. This museum and exposition about the infamous SS combined together for a price of €3,- is exceptionally low and worth every cent.
  • I love this castle ☺️ what a beautiful place. Lots of history from this castle. I really want to see the Schwarze Sunne ( Black Sun) on the floor.
