Bike Touring Highlight
Bückeburg Castle has been continuously inhabited since its construction; originally by the Counts of Holstein-Schaumburg and from 1640 by the members of the count's, later the princely family zu Schaumburg-Lippe. Today, Alexander Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe lives in the castle.
Since 1925, individual rooms have been visited, including the castle chapel, the Golden Hall and the large ballroom. Since May 2004, the Riding School Bückeburg is located in the stables, in which the equestrian art of European epochs of the 11th to 17th centuries is shown and maintained. Bückeburg Castle is also the venue for a variety of festivals and exhibitions, for example, the "Landgang", which takes place annually in early summer, the "Christmas magic", which takes place on the first two Advent weekends each year within the castle and in the surrounding area and about 60,000 Visiting people every year. In addition, the Schaumburg land fair "Ahrensache" annually on the first weekend in September, or the medieval market "Medieval Spectaculum" in July. There is also a great deal of interest among the public in classic car rallies, such as the "Schaumburg Classics", in which the castle is included as a station. For some time, civil weddings in the baroque music hall are possible, and the castle chapel can now be used by wedding couples of different Christian denominations.
