Bike Touring Highlight
Friedrich von Steinberg built the Brüggen Castle in 1693 under the leadership of the architect and Wolfenbüttel court architect Herrmann Korb. Brüggen was one of the most important knights' seats in the Hildesheim region in the Middle Ages. The structure and the decorative details have Italian and Dutch influences. Inside, there is still a part of the 18th and 19th century furnishings, including various portraits of the von Steinberg family, the Guelph dynasty and related personalities. A castle tour is not possible, but the castle park, the garden café and belonging to the property farm and farm buildings are also worth seeing. Several times a year, Schloss Brüggen is home to a historic artisan market. The market is a magnet for visitors from near and far.
