Neuenbürg Castle: The adventure castle in the northern Black Forest
Neuenbürg Castle in the Upper Enz Valley is an attractive destination for the whole family. The walk-in theater “Das kalte Herz” integrated in the museum and the exhibition on the castle and regional history, the castle restaurant, regular special exhibitions in spring and at the end of the year as well as numerous cultural events throughout the year make the visit an unforgettable experience. The fairy tale show “The Cold Heart” based on the story by Wilhelm Hauff is experienced as a walk-in theater in six rooms. It is a museum that is consistently innovating.
On June 30, 2001 the time had come: the museum in Neuenbürg Castle opened its doors to visitors after a five-year renovation of the entire complex. The branch museum of the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe was set up by the Swiss design office Steiner Sarnen, which has made a name for itself for its innovative and future-oriented exhibition concepts.
The creative employees around Otto Jolias Steiner worked together with the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe on the main focus areas, which mainly relate to the region of the Northern Black Forest.
The museum can be visited without prior notice at the specified opening times. The exhibitions can be visited without guided tours. Guided tours on the history of the castle (with castle ruins and St. George's Church) can be booked by prior arrangement. The museum is run as a branch museum of the Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe and operated by the city of Neuenbürg.
