Welcome to Schleswig city museum

A living history of Schleswig

Gottorf Castle, the Hedeby Viking Museum and other cultural sites in Schleswig should actually cover the city's history sufficiently but the Schleswig City Museum offers yet another perspective on the 1,200 year history of the city. As soon as you walk towards the Günderothsche Hof you are able to sense the past of this historic building. What choice can be more obvious than to dwell on the history of beautiful Schleswig inside this historic building?

The estate is one of the most beautiful manors in Northern Germany. It served as a palace for guests of the duke's equerry Friedrich von Günderoth. However, the Günderothsche Hof hasn't always looked the way it looks today. The manor was extended in the 18th century by the two erected half-timbered houses surrounding the main residence. The representative entrance hall with its rare late-baroque staircase is particularly worth seeing. Since 1932, the city of Schleswig organises the city museum. The exhibition area grew continuously by including other buildings in the vicinity.

The Schleswig City Museum narrates the history and culture of Schleswig from the Middle Ages through the present day. Among the topics examined are Hedeby, the city’s “golden age” under the Dukes of Gottorp the Danish-German conflict of the 19th century, Schleswig’s role as a Prussian provincial capital and the development of the fishing village on the Holm.
