Tour guides are available. The acoustics in the main hall are outstanding. If you have the chance, sing a short tune!
- Built in the 16th century by Duke Wilhelm V as a simple farmhouse, the Duke's son, Elector Maximilan I, converted the house into a high Renaissance-style manor house between in 1617-23. The original outhouses were kept, and remain intact today. Large scale renovation was necessary after a bad fire in 1944, and the Altes Schloss now forms part of the Bavarian National Museum, showing exhibitions on East and West Prussia and the Gertrud Weinhold collection.
