I came to see the Christmas market and after visiting several vendors I realized I was on the grounds of a 14th Century Castle. Unlike many residential castles with no military history, "The Castle" or Castle Ritzebruttel as they call it was actually under siege by the Hanseatic League in 1393. A detailed diorama inside shows the Castle as it was in medieval times. When the diorama is juxtaposed to the present day park it is easy to see the remains of moats and over grown drawbridges and other features time has not erased. The Castle is now used for Weddings and concerts and while this was not a guided tour it was a bargain at 3 euros. There were several beautiful rooms with antique furniture, stained glass and period artifacts to observe,. I would have loved some narration but I still enjoyed this pleasent surprise.

It's well maintained and very appropriate for an event or a gathering. It was set up for a wedding on the day of our visit. The stained glass with emblems and crests are well preserved. The 2 listening stations with headphones of music by Bach and history of the man himself was great. The garden is a little oasis within the confines of the town. Though there's no English explanation. Comprehension of German is a must. Entrance is 3 euros.

Unfortunately, it was already late in the afternoon and the Schloss (Palace) itself was closed for visitors. However, I was able to explore the extensive gardens. The autumn colours were magnificent and I very much enjoyed the tranquil surrounds. Worth having another look some day

We attended civil wedding at the Ritzebuettel castle and it is just beautiful. The castle consists of a large red brick tower built in the middle ages and a red brick baroque era addition placed in front of the tower, giving it more of a home appearance. After a lengthy restoration, the rooms were re-opened in 1996. Period furniture, decorative plaster ceilings, stained lead glass windows and fine wood carvings are presented beautifully here. The building is also used for art exhibits.
