Spannend, vielseitig und informativ wird hier in Modern gestalteten historischen Räumen Geschichte, Kunst und Kultur der Region vermittelt. Sehr freundlicher, hilfsbereiter Service. Behindertengerechte Zugänge. Aufwändige Inszenierung der Fakten, facettenreiche Darstellung machen Vergangenes lebendig. Mich begeisterte die Malerei: nachdem wir das Kloster Eldena gesehen haben, hier nun die Darstellung des C.D. Friedrich und der Romantiker. Sehr sehenswert und ein Erlebnis, das Sie sich gönnen sollten. Greifswald gewinnt neue Dimensionen und Sie neue Einsichten. Lassen Sie sich begeistern!

The Museum is located next to the old city wall in Greifswald, which is also an interesting tourist site. The museum has a very modern feel to it with a few interactive pieces. There is also an art gallery showing off some of the most famous works from the area, including some of the work from Caspar David Friedrich (the most famous artist from this town.)

Hluboká Castle

Hluboká Castle (Schloss Frauenberg) is considered one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic. In the second half of the 13th century, a Gothic castle was built at the site. During its history, the castle was rebuilt several times. It was first expanded during the Renaissance period, then rebuilt into a Baroque castle at the order of Adam Franz von Schwarzenberg in the beginning of the 18th century. It reached its current appearance during the 19th century, when Johann Adolf II von Schwarzenberg ordered the reconstruction of the castle in the romantic style of England's Windsor Castle.

The Schwarzenbergs lived in Hluboká until the end of 1939, when the last owner (Adolph Schwarzenberg) emigrated overseas to escape from the Nazis. The Schwarzenbergs lost all of their Czech property through a special legislative Act, the Lex Schwarzenberg, in 1947.

The original royal castle of Přemysl Otakar II from the second half of the 13th century was rebuilt at the end of the 16th century by the Lords of Hradec. It received its present appearance under Count Jan Adam of Schwarzenberg. According to the English Windsor example, architects Franz Beer and F. Deworetzky built a Romantic Neo-Gothic chateau, surrounded by a 1.9 square kilometres English park here in the years 1841 to 1871. In 1940, the castle was seized from the last owner, Adolph Schwarzenberg by the Gestapo and confiscated by the government of Czechoslovakia after the end of World War II. The castle is open to public. There is a winter garden and riding-hall where the Southern Bohemian gallery exhibitions have been housed since 1956.
