HANN. MÜNDEN – Welfenschloss

The first Mündener castle 1501 was finished by Herzog Erich I as a Gothic construction. It concerned a residence castle with administrative seat. After almost entire destruction in case of a fire in 1560 Herzog Erich II. built up the castle in the style of the early Weser Renaissance again. Later the Welfen castle became less important more and more and was used only sporadically as a place of residence of the sovereigns. A renewed fire in 1849 destroyed the south wing which was not rebuilt. Are received in the today’s Welfen castle in which the town archive, the town library, the district court and the urban museum are accommodated, two Renaissance rooms with exhaustive mural paintings.
