  • We are unceremoniously departed from the Autibahn because a warning label on the triangle Castle drew the attention of us. An impossantes building with towers, moat, bridges and a large courtyard. In its present form the Wewelsburg was built from 1603-1609. In the Nazi era, it was "misappropriated", today a youth hostel and several permanent exhibitions is located under the roof of the Castle. In the garden is a lovely herb garden to admire, and an adjacent restaurant invites you to linger.

  • We have visited this museum today. It was not bad, with a very different collection. Actually I had known more about the chapter SS to know, but have found nothing.

  • It is here that takes the source on the history of Nazi Germany. Those interested in history, be sure to visit. Entrance to the Museum is free, just give out audio guides in different languages (including Russian)

  • 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.
  • Beautiful place
  • Amazing history.
  • Beginning of the 17th century in the style of the Weser Renaissance to a medieval tower around established regular three-winged building with corner towers and the only triangle Castle in Germany. The chequered history as Prince residence and ideological Center of the SS characterises the appearance of the Castle and gives it a unique atmosphere, which stimulates thinking.
