Photography and filming

Taking pictures for private use in the museum (without light and tripod etc.) or on the castle grounds does not require a permit. We regret that wedding shootings inside are not possible. Photo and film shootings as well as the flying of drones / multicopters are basically subject to approval and charges. Here you will find information on photography permits / film permits.


Bulky items

Bulky items may not be taken into the museum rooms. Lockers are available near the cash desk for large bags, rucksacks, photo equipment etc. Prams and child carriers can be left at the cash desk. No liability can be accepted for items deposited in lockers or at the cash desk.


Food and beverages

Food and beverages may not be taken into the museum rooms.



Dogs and other pets are not allowed in the museum. Unfortunately, we cannot offer supervision for animals brought along. Please keep dogs on a lead on the castle grounds.
