Gif­horn Castle

Duke Francis had this moated castle built in Renaissance style in 1525. The historical museum contains the great wolf that was shot near Gifhorn in 1956 – just one of the items sure to appeal to children, along with the museum rally. In the vaulted cellar, Pater Laurentius treats his guests to medieval dishes.

And the castle courtyard is a popular venue for events, such as the entertaining “Allerlay Speyß vonn Spiess” cultural festival in May and the atmospherically illuminated Advent market in December
