Schloss Fürstenberg is the home of the oldest and most famous porcelain factory in Europe, Porzellanmanufaktur Fürstenberg, where the 'white gold of the Weser' is produced. It was founded in 1747 by Charles I, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. The castle is home to the only porcelain museum in northern Germany, where you will find over 10 000 exhibits covering three centuries of porcelain art - a fascinating journey through the cultural history of the 'white gold'. In the visitor workshop, experienced porcelain makers demonstrate how porcelain is made and painted. The factory outlet offers a wide selection of tableware, so you can take a very personal porcelain souvenir home with you. The castle is perched on a hill overlooking the Weser, and the best way to enjoy the wonderful views of the Weser Valley is in the Lottine café and restaurant where you can sample delicious homemade cakes.
