Tips

  • Lisa

    The ascent on foot to Burg Castle is short and crisp, with an ascent of 16 to 19 percent, but the goal is sufficiently rewarding. The view of the lower castle and castle castle is great. And the waffles are highly recommended.

    Use the free parking above (behind the volunteer fire department), take the cable car from the castle down to the valley and an easy hike up again. Approximately 5km through forest, streams, viewpoint

    Nostalgic charm, jousting games take place several times a year. A delicious waffle and coffee from the Dröppelminna are a must.

    Castle Castle is always worth a visit. We (family with two children, 3 and 8 years) have participated in a guided tour for the first time. The entrance incl. Guided tour was only 14 € for the whole family. The tour took about 45 minutes and was entertaining and entertaining for both adults and children. The highlight for the children was certainly to be able to put on a real knight's helmet or a chain mail in the end.

    Burg Castle in Solingen
    Cultural site, adventure site and landmark
    The hilltop castle in the Bergisches Land offers a unique panoramic view. With a mobile phone app, visitors can explore the museum and other rooms in the castle. The journey is easily possible with a chairlift. Events such as open-air concerts and jousting games invite you to linger throughout the year.
    Anyone who takes the oldest double chairlift in Germany from the Unterburg district to Oberburg to reach the castle above knows what treasure awaits after overcoming 91 meters of altitude. The backdrop on the mountain top is breathtaking. The view falls on the calm Wupper and jumps over the ramified hills and valleys in the wide area. No wonder that Adolf II von Berg chose this place as the ancestral home for his family around 1130.

    But Burg Castle is not only worth a visit because of the unique panorama and the remarkable history of its clients - including Count Adolf V. von Berg, who made Düsseldorf a city. Nowadays the facility is a landmark of the Bergisches Land, a real tourist magnet and a diverse adventure site. The Bergisches Museum is housed in the magnificent walls of the restored fortress, which was called Neuenberge Castle until the 15th century, fell into ruin between the 17th and 19th centuries and was finally rebuilt in the historical style from 1890 by an association and many helpers .
    Visitors can find out more about the history of the castle and exhibits such as historical weapons, large wall paintings or silver trophies on a tour with a museum guide, mobile phone or tablet.

    Burg Castle sits enthroned 110 meters above the Wupper, and the defensive keep can be seen from afar. Inside there are massive walls, huge archways, narrow streets, narrow courtyards and sunny terraces. The origins go back to the 12th century: In the Middle Ages, the castle was the seat of the Counts of Berg, the scene of court festivals and a place of great politics. Today it is one of the most popular excursion destinations in the region. Anyone who comes here is embarking on a journey through time to the Middle Ages - swords and armor included. History comes to life here and you get an impression of how it used to be.
    The view from above, over the valleys and heights of the Wupper Mountains, into the vastness of the Bergisches Land is simply fantastic. Restaurants in the immediate vicinity invite you to take a break.

    There are three Count Engelbert von Burg, the second depicted here (1185-1225) made a name for himself in his place of birth by having the castle expanded in a representative way. In addition to his high and influential position as Archbishop of Cologne, he also served the Staufer Emperor Friedrich II as Reich Administrator.
    The life-size equestrian statue stands in the courtyard on an approx. 2 m high stone plinth.
