Schloss Bückeburg was built in 1290 as a moated castle and enlarged in 1544 to create an elegant residence in the Weser Renaissance style. It has been the seat of the princely family of Schaumburg-Lippe for over 700 years, and Prince Alexander and his family still reside here today. So if you are lucky, you may meet a real-life prince! You can explore the castle by yourself or with a guide. One of the highlights of the castle is the Rococo great hall with its pink scagliola and ceiling frescoes, modelled on Titian, Veronese and Tiepolo. Owing to its excellent acoustics, the room is still used for concerts. Other highlights of a visit to the castle include the Golden Room and the richly decorated chapel. There is also plenty to discover in the extensive grounds, including the world's biggest privately owned mausoleum. Constructed between 1911 and 1915, it is the burial place of the princely family of Schaumburg-Lippe. It contains the largest gold mosaic cupola in Europe, 25 metres high and 500 m² in area. A visit to the riding school in the castle grounds is also not to be missed. The stables are home to 18 valuable stallions and a museum. There are equestrian demonstrations of the Baroque riding school.
