Lemgo Things to Do

    Brake Castle is a moated castle palace built in the Renaissance style.

    In 1986 the Weser-Renaissance museum was established in one section of the building.

    Spread out over 2000 sqm, the museum displays furniture, paintings, and sculptures from the Renaissance period inside the castle’s stately rooms.

    The castle was rebuilt as the residence of count Simon of Lippe between 1584 and 1592. It is erected on the foundation walls of one of the largest medieval castles in northern Germany.

    The castle features a six storey tower where private apartments were accessed by a secret staircase.

    Brake Castle was the seat of the Lemgo county administration from 1932 on and was taken over by the association of the historic territory of Lippe in 1973.

    The buildings in the castle vicinity – the attached agricultural-estate buildings, three historic mills and a washhouse – still convey today an impressive picture of what an early modern residence was like.

    Its medieval town centre with stone and adorned half-timbered houses date from the Late-Gothic and Renaissance period. Very few towns in Germany have a historical centre restored with such careful attention to detail.

    If you want to go shopping in Lemgo then you have to visit Mittelstraße. It is the street right through the city and is more a pedestriant precinct with al the shops on the right and left. There you will find everything you need!
