Based on numerous years of conceptual considerations, an intensive planning phase and the construction works starting in 2011, Falkenberg Castle was officially opened to the public during a festive ceremony on 13 November, 2015, as a revitalized castle.
The castle includes:
- the moat and the gatehouse in front of the castle
- the MuseumBurg in memory of Friedrich-Werner Graf von der Schulenburg, diplomat and saviour of the castle in the thirties of the 20th century. The MuseumBurg informs you about the thousand-year castle history in many areas of the castle.
- the knight’s hall and chapter hall for cultural events, conferences and catering purposes.
- the small and cosy HotelBurg in the attic areas with eight double rooms.
- the TagungszentrumBurg (conference centre) at the foot of the castle “In der Schwaige” adjacent to the communal brewery in Falkenberg.
The following picture galleries lead the visitors around Falkenberg Castle. A soft-opening phase of several months followed the opening ceremony on 13 November 2015 until spring. Falkenberg Castle became fully operational on an Open Day and the Castle Festival during the weekend of 7 and 8 May 2016.
