Welcome to the Gottorf Castle's Museum Complex!

Schleswig’s museum island offers an exciting excursion in Schleswig-Holstein’s history, spectacular archaeological treasures and works of art. The highlights include the castle itself, whose rooms now house the Gottorf Castle's Museum of Archaeology and the Gottorf Castle's Museum of Art and Cultural History. The Gottorf Globe, located close to the museum island, is no less worth seeing and is known as the first planetarium ever. You also should not miss the reconstructed Baroque garden which encloses it.
