Castels and gardens in Braunschweig


Henry the Lion had this castle built in around 1175 as a residence inspired by the imperial palaces of the time. It was completely rebuilt following many alterations and fire damage from 1887 to 1906 in a historicized manner. The castle now accommodates the mediaeval section of Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum: In the „Knappensaal“ hall, some of the Guelph treasures are on display as well as valuable liturgicalclothing and the original Braunschweig Lion. On the upper floor there is a splendid great hall.


Europe’s largest quadriga can be found on the portico of the residence palace. This palace, the residence of the Guelphs, was reconstructed in its original size and in its original setting, the Schlossplatz, with the help of old plans and historical photos. The adjoining shopping mall ‘Schloss Arkaden’ contains approximately 150 shops and restaurants.

The palace is an excellent example of late Baroque architecture. The palace stunned its guests in olden days  framed by the Richmond Park in style of english landscape gardens.
