1000 years of history of the area are presented in this museum. Most of the signage is in German or Denish, but some things are also explained in English. Don't forget to take a walk through the gardens

Must visit during a stay in Schleswig. Check out the prehistoric displays, the castle church, the paintings of Cranach and the large special exhibitions.
