Iburg Castle for the Castles and Palaces Day

The city's landmark is undoubtedly the castle, which towers unmistakably above the Schlossberg. A historic place whose inhabitants have had a lasting influence on European history. The Knights' Hall in particular, which was built in the mid-17th century and has been used for special cultural events and occasions for around 40 years, is an unusual and fascinating sight. It is one of the earliest baroque halls in northwest Germany and combines an impressive gallery of bishops with the deeds of Hercules, crowned by a breathtaking ceiling painting with the impressive perspective painting.
