On the outskirts of Hamburg, this exquisite white castle is the former home to noble families. Open to the public since 1955, visitors have an unparalleled experience and are able to get up close to the history of the castle.
Glide through the Castle
Visitors will be given special slippers so that they can glide elegantly over the parquet flooring, whilst also admiring the incredible array of paintings, art, china and chandeliers in the castle. The castle has a huge collection of paintings from across the years, in particular landscape paintings and art which represents the years gone by.
Gardens and Events
The castle grounds are also worth a visit. Ahrensburg castle is set amongst extensive grassy parks, and although the moat is now filled, that doesn't stop the surrounding area from impressing. The castle holds several events every year, including an exciting mediaeval market, a puppet theatre for children and even a guided tour round the castle gardens.
The castle is even the perfect place for your event, and has the facilities for weddings, parties and birthdays.
