  • Ideological and mystical home of the SS during World War II wanted to directly by the head of SS Heinrich Himmler. Every step is a thrill. just great. Shame about the meditation cushions/reading positioned right on the Black Sun!

  • The Castle and its Museum are worth very. We are rather by chance, due to the bad weather, landed here and were more than positively surprised. The exhibition is well structured and very interesting. We are happy again!

  • 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.
  • Amazing little castle was used as the SS HQ during WW2 and was going to be the new center of Europe if the Nazis won the war Lots of history in and around the town as well.
  • Amazing history.
  • Beautiful place
