  • Fascinating historical place and museum with great views into the surrounding area. The adjacent museum about the role of Wewelsburg in the dark times of the 1930's and 40's is very shocking. Must see, but not for children. The castle exhibition however is great for adults and children alike.
  • Very Educational, and very satisfying...thanks HH
  • Excellent museum and a very easy place to spend an afternoon.
  • A decent looking place with a lot of SS history behind it. Some locals look like they've never seen a minority before though.
  • It was nice that it was open on a Sunday. I enjoyed both tours that were available through audio in English. One was a tour explaining the history of the Nazi SS and how they used the castle at Wewelsburg. The castle itself had a tour with explanation of the history of the Paderborn Wewelsburg area dating back thousands of years. I enjoyed this educational visit.
