In the north wing, Central Europe’s greatest knights’ hall shall be rebuilt, and with its 300 square meters it will serve as a concert and conference hall. The reconstruction of the chapel in the east wing will open the possibility to holding weddings in this unique atmosphere.

The goal of the interactive environment is not just entertainment, but historic education, and with the help of reenactors, in their authentic clothing, visitors can expect a complete experience.
