This beautiful castle is located right across from the historic Landestheater. It is surrounded by a pretty public park, where I go almost everyday with my pooch. It is a pretty hot meeting place for Detmold doggies.

The castle grounds are open and free for people to walk around the lawns, centrally situated. Delightful inside, with wall hangings and much vintage German stuff.
