A declaration of love to the ancient world – the Weser Renaissance and beyond
The Renaissance was defined by the rediscovery of classical art and the rebirth of man's critical outlook. Traces of this new dawn in history can be seen in the magnificent architecture of the Weser Renaissance and in north-west Germany.
Hämelschenburg unites all the characteristics worthy of a most magnificent castle – an imposing triple-wing arrangement with moats, a fortified bridge providing access and two splendid octagonal towers housing the staircases.
