Welcome to Husum Castle

Husum castle has developed into a significant cultural centre on the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein and has a lot to offer its visitors. It is possible for example, to visit the former state rooms which portray how its erstwhile dwellers lived. Moreover, modern art from Schleswig-Holstein is presented in four special exhibitions a year at the castle.

The castle provides – as it did in the 17th century – a rich cultural environment which includes concerts, lectures, and performances of local plays. Highly renowned music events such as “Rare Piano Music” and “Young Maestros” take place here at the castle.

As well as the museum, the castle houses the Cultural Office of the region Nordfriesland and the School of Music.

The former kitchen wing of the castle is now home to the Castle Café, which is run by the Theodor-Schäfer vocational training centre. Young people who are hearing impaired or with physical disabilties are trained here in catering. Trainees from the vocational training centre also maintain and cultivate the gardens on the castle island.

In 2008, with the help of grants from the State of Schleswig-Holstein as well as money from sponsors, the district of Nordfriesland was able to remodel the castle gardens.
At the moment, a gallery is being installed in the attic of the castle, where future exhibitions will be shown.

It is also possible to marry the love of your life here in the castle, where both registry office and church weddings can take place. Christenings can be held in the castle chapel.

Unfortunately, only the ground floor of the castle is accessible to wheelchairs at present. Toilets for the disabled are provided in the Castle Café. We are pleased to help wherever we can and are available for any questions you might have.
