how to get there: löwenburg

You can get to Löwenburg via Wilhelmshöhe Visitor Centre or the Wilhelmshöhe Palace car park.

To get to Wilhelmshöhe Visitor Centre, take the Line 1 tram to the final stop of »Wilhelmshöhe Park«.

For visitors arriving by train, the ICE railway station of Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe is very convenient. From the station, it is just four stops of the Line 1 tram to the final stop of »Wilhelmshöhe/Park«. Alternatively, seven stops of the Line 3 tram will take you to the terminal of »Druseltal«. Arriving at Kassel Main Station in the city centre, take the Line 5 Regio-Tram or the next available regional train to »Bhf. Wilhelmshöhe« and change to Line 1.

If you arrive by car on the A44, take the exit for Kassel Bad Wilhelmshöhe (68) and follow the inner-city signage for »Herkules«. Once you are offered a choice between »Herkules« and »Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe« please follow the signs for »Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe«. If you arrive in the city from other directions, follow the signs for »Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe«. There is a public car park next to Wilhelmshöhe Palace Visitor Centre; parking fees apply on water-displays days between 9.30 am and 3 pm.

From the Visitor Centre, continue to Löwenburg Castle on foot. It is about an hour's walk past Wilhelmshöhe Palace through the Bergpark (uphill, hard surface).

On water-displays days, visitors with restricted mobility can also board the Bergpark shuttle bus at the Wilhelmshöhe Palace car park (for more information, see Water Displays) and get off at Löwenburg castle.

Due to the large-scale restoration work in progress, only the Bower Wing, the Armoury and the Chapel are currently open to visitors. The living quarters of the Prince's Wing are closed. From January 2017, the Bower Wing will be closed too. Ticket prices will be reduced accordingly.
