Experts created an ‘accessible movie': Light, sound, mechanical theatre and beautifully crafted wooden figures turn the fairy tale into a special experience. The exhibition on the second floor focuses on another tale. “Zum schönsten Wiesengrunde” by Wilhelm Ganzhorn tells the story of the servant Ambrosius who takes visitors to the south wing of the castle without permission.

Their owners are abroad, but it could happen any minute that they come by to collect the boxes.
