Castle Gifhorn

Duke Franz had the moated renaissance castle built in 1525. The castle’s historic museum houses several popular exhibits, including the giant wolf that was killed in 1956 near Gifhorn, which children love just as much as the museum rally. In the vaulted cellars, Pater Laurentius invites guests to dine at his medieval banqueting tables. Several events are held in the castle courtyard, including the culture festival “Allerlay Speiß vonn Spiess” in May and the festively illuminated Advent Market in December.
