    High above the city towers the castle Pappenheim - undoubtedly one of the most important knight castles in Bavaria. The castle ruins are very well preserved and can be extensively explored by you. From the towers and the defensive wall you can enjoy a magnificent view over the city and the countryside, in the rooms you dive into the medieval life and in the nature and hunting museum you will learn a lot about the wildlife of the Altmühltal.

    Opening hours:
    End of March to beginning of November
    closed on Mondays
    Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm

    Entry:
    Adults: 4 euros
    Children: 3 euros

    More information can be found at grafschaft-pappenheim.de/burg.

    The location of Pappenheim Castle alone makes a visit worthwhile. The castle is located on a hill above a loop of the Altmühl and from there you have a great view over the Altmühl valley. The nature and hunting museum is also located on the castle grounds.

    Pappenheim Castle
    From the keep you have a wonderful view over the city and the enchanting landscape. The castle, the gateway to the Altmühltal, is the ancestral seat of the Counts of Pappenheim who were once imperial hereditary marshals of the Holy Roman Empire. Probably the most famous offspring of this family is Gottfried Heinrich Graf zu Pappenheim, who was also called "Schrammhans" because of his many scars acquired in battle. He fought in the Thirty Years' War under Wallenstein and was fatally wounded in the Battle of Lützen in which the Swedish King, Gustav-Adolf, was killed. Schiller made the name Pappenheim known through his work "Wallenstein" by putting the sentence "That is how I recognize my Pappenheimer" in the general's mouth. This sentence stood not only for the courage and bravery of the Pappenheim cuirassiers, which Count Pappenheim commanded, but also for their loyalty to the king and sincerity. Today the sentence is more in its verb

    The castle chapel with its starry sky is particularly romantic; you can also get married here or have your child baptized. The ruins of the former George Chapel on the main castle are ideal for an outdoor wedding. 2 halls can be rented for celebrations (ancestral hall & coat of arms hall) or one of the outdoor areas. The city administration of the city of Pappenheim also offers civil weddings at the castle. The half-timbered hall serves as the registry office at the castle.

    The castle is closed from November to the end of March. But you can still walk around and enjoy the view 👍.

    With its great animal preparations I liked the hunting museum almost better than the castle. The salted entrance fee of 4 € for the castle makes up for the hunting museum.
