The charm of the FÜRSTENBERG castle complex lies in the combination of yesterday and today. Here, the historic Weser Renaissance castle; there, the modern porcelain manufactory FÜRSTENBERG. The castle complex offers an extraordinary experience to culture enthusiasts and weekend visitors of all ages. The views of the Weser valley from the panoramic terrace are simply breathtaking.
The new porcelain museum uniquely demonstrates the fascinating transformation in sophisticated dining from 1747 to today. A first-rate historical monument with modern interior design, presenting the most extensive range of Fürstenberg porcelain in an innovatively designed exhibition - even in the castle's new museum, the traditional and the modern blend harmoniously.
The secret of exquisite manufactured porcelain lies in its handmade character. After all, it's the human hand that gives FÜRSTENBERG porcelain its special quality. You can watch some of these hands at work in our spacious Visitors' Workshop. Typical manufacturing techniques are demonstrated at four workstations. Experienced porcelain makers show how a plate is turned, a figurine cast and a handle attached to a cup. Using confident brush strokes, the porcelain painter decorates the white pieces with the most beautiful motifs. Yet the workshop isn't just for looking, but a place where you can also paint a piece of FÜRSTENBERG porcelain yourself, to keep as your own unique souvenir.
