The Bergedorf Schloss in Hamburg
The only castle on Hamburg city territory
Anyone who wants to see and experience the history of Hamburg is in the right place in these historic walls. The Bergedorf Castle, which appears rather less magnificent from the outside, originally served as a moated castle and administrative building for the nobility.
Today it houses a museum. On two floors you can get to know the diversity of the district and get an insight into the history of Hamburg. It is the only preserved castle on Hamburg city territory and definitely worth a visit, although it was never inhabited by kings. Even for those of you who are not interested in history, the visit is worthwhile, because Bergedorf Castle is surrounded by idyllic greenery. The extensive castle park invites you to stroll around in summer as well as in winter. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery both during the day and in the evening.
