Castle Kniphausen

WHV Burg Kniphausen 640

The castle was built in 1438 as the residence of a medieval chieftain. In 1708 a fire destroyed the castle and then the stables converted into a count's apartment with administrative offices. In 1990, the castle was completely renovated. The ancestral hall and associated facilities are used by the Foundation “Castle Kniphausen” for a variety of cultural events and weddings. Worth seeing is the ancestral hall, the gatehouse and the park. A castle tavern provides culinary specialties in a cozy atmosphere.
