The castle is a part of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum. It hosts a medieval collection on the ground floor. Here you will find religious clothing and objects, animal bone horns, weapons, old coins and the famous Braunschweig lion. Tip: the entrance fee is deducted from the ticket price at the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum of Art, which is within... More

The must is the room on the top floor with all the wall painting and decoration to take your breath away. The Museum on the first level Kept the real bronze lion, the icon of the town and costume of priests are the must you shouldn't miss. Really good.

Although looking imposing and well-preserved it does not produce a feeling of authenticity. Rather it looks like a "new old" castle and recently I learnt that it was indeed reconstructed in the 19th century. It has a nice little museum (to your right at the entrance) which houses the original statue of the lion a copy of which is standing... More
