Our audio guide is about to take you on a journey back in time to explore the history of the castle and the people who have lived here. For more than 800 years, Braunfels Castle has belonged to the Counts and Princes of Solms-Braunfels – so it has a great many stories to tell.
The audio tour starts at the market square or at the Kleppertor and on the way up to the castle it tells a lot about the castle’s architectural history, the former Liegemen’s Settlement, the defenses and the castle church. Then it’s off to the Princely Family Museum, which houses numerous exciting exhibits as the family’s treasury. The two likeable narrator voices tell the story(s) of the numerous halberds, guns, seals, coins, medals and uniforms, clothes, glasses and porcelain service — in German, English and Spanish!
