Heidecksburg Palace in Rudolstadt

The Baroque Castle in Thuringia

Heidecksburg Palace, the former residence of the counts and princes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, is one of the most magnificent baroque palaces of the 18th century. With its diverse collections and exhibitions, it attracts over 100,000 visitors every year, making it one of the most popular destinations in Thuringia.

Follow in the footsteps of Schwarzburg nobility, one of the oldest Thuringian noble families, and discover the fascinating architectural history of the complex with its princely baroque splendour. Marvel at exhibits from the history of art, culture and nature – a testimony to the great collecting passion at court – and immerse yourself in the »Wunderkammer Heidecksburg« – the Chamber of Wonders at the Heidecksburg Palace.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
