Hamburg's only castle - and probably the smallest castle in the world.

The Alsterschlösschen Henneberg Castle is an absolute insider tip in Hamburg. Selected concerts, readings, events, art exhibitions and even yoga courses take place in the atmospheric Knights' Hall or, if the weather is fine, directly at the Alster Open Air in the "Alsterphilharmonie". The Alster Castle Henneberg, Hamburg's only castle, is located in Hamburg Poppenbüttel directly on the Alster. It is located in the beautiful Hennebergpark and can be quickly reached on foot from the S-Bahn station Poppenbüttel or the bus stop Schulbergredder.

The castle is a relic from the period of 19th century castle romanticism and is entered in the list of monuments as "Burgruine Henneberg". Reduced replica of Henneberg Castle in Thuringia on a scale of 1:4 and it has everything that makes a "real" castle. It consists of a main building with a 12 metre high tower, a small chapel on the banks of the Alster and a real knight's hall. The unique charm of the castle, the intimate encounter with extraordinary artists as well as the magnificent acoustics make every concert a very special experience.


History & Construction - The development of the smallest castle in the world

After many years of non-use, the dilapidated castle was to be demolished. Fortunately, it was restored in 1990 by a private investor and has been a listed building since 1991. With the establishment of the non-profit Henneberg Castle Foundation, the castle has been open to the public since 2014 and offers a varied weekly cultural programme. All events can be visited by prior booking via alsterschloesschen.reservix.de or the hotline 0180 - 60 50 40 0.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Hamburg North

Hamburg North is a wonderful place to live. The city centre can be reached in no time, and there is plenty of nature nearby. Everything goes at a slightly slower pace here. But there are still many things to see and do.
