Bückeburg Castle, which has been in the ownership of the House of Schaumburg-Lippe for over 700 years, is a Renaissance castle with magnificent halls originating from a period of four centuries.
Ever since 1925 the princely residence has been a tourist destination for individual visitors, families and groups. Although Bückeburg Castle is now known far beyond the region for its major events such as the “Landpartie” and “Weihnachtszauber” (“Christmas Magic”) festivals, this is not the only reason for the many visitors – in fact, it has a wealth of sights and attractions all year round.
Amidst an idyllic 80-hectare park, one can find the mausoleum – Europe’s biggest privately owned monumental burial site – and the Royal Riding School where visitors can watch enchanting demonstrations of Baroque riding skills with a tradition going back 400 years.
Take a guided tour of the castle to discover how courtly life looked in the various epochs. And stop by at the “Alte Schlossküche” (Old Castle Kitchen) café/restaurant or the Park Café for seasonal fresh cuisine and a rich selection of cakes and gateaux.
The castle’s events calendar is rounded off by concerts, exhibitions
