Wolfsburg Castle

Schloss Wolfsburg is not only the city’s namesake, it’s also an important centre of cultural life. Wolfsburg City Museum is located here, as well as the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg and Wolfsburg Art Association. The legacy of the world-renowned photographer Heinrich Heidersberger has found its home in the castle with the Heidersberger Photographic Institute, next to the ceramic workshop of Dorothea Chabert. This exciting combination of art, creativity and culture shapes the character of the Renaissance castle – young, modern life meets old, historical substance and makes for a surprising effect. The building was first mentioned in history books in 1302, when the von Bartensleben brothers, Burchard, Günter and Werner, were the lords of the castle complex. Since 1961, the impressive, looming edifice with its artistic Baroque garden has been in the ownership of the city of Wolfsburg. A culinary-gastronomic highlight is the Remise castle.

Located in the inner rooms are:

  • the Städtische Galerie,
  • the City Museum
  • the Kunstverein Wolfsburg e.V. [Wolfsburg Art Association]
  • the Institut Heidersberger GmbH
  • as well as the Learning Workshop (regional teacher training)

A castle tour with a walk through the historical inner rooms provides interesting facts on the history of the more than 700 year old monument. Booking information for tours, as well as prices and tour times are available via the City Museum, Tel. (+49)5361/828540
